American Fuel and Petrochemical Manufacturers may sue Trump Administration of E15

In Washington, the Washington Examiner reports that a source close to the American Fuel and Petrochemical Manufacturers said the organization was likely to sue the Trump Administration for approving year-round E15 sales. In a statement following the report that Trump had told Senators he was going ahead with policy shift, the AFPM’s CEO said in a statement, “The President’s proposal to waive the rules for E15 is unlawful and could actually make the problems of the Renewable Fuel Standard worse. The President has promised to broker a deal to reform the RFS that works for all stakeholders. This isn’t it. We are disappointed to see that despite good-faith efforts by refiners to find potential solutions, the Administration has unilaterally embraced a one-sided approach that only serves the ethanol community, which has shown little interest in finding common ground.”
