EPA administrator believes he has statutory right to approve year-round E15

In Iowa, Reuters reports that the administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency said during a charm offensive in the Midwest that he believes his agency has the statutory authority to grant year-round E15 sales, a process that would require rulemaking along with a notice and comment period. The administrator has come under heavy fire for being anti-ethanol despite President Trump insisting that his administration is in favor of the fuel. Farm states have strongly called for his resignation as a result of what are seen as anti-ethanol policies such as boosting the amount of hardship waivers for oil refineries.
