Year-round E15 without fixing RINs credits is no compromise

Oct. 12, 2018, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement in opposition to a Trump administration decision to allow E15 to be sold year-round without allowing RINs credits to be attached to ethanol exports:

“Ideally, Congress and the Trump administration would get rid of the E15 mandate altogether, but an acceptable compromise might have been the one announced in May to allow RINs credits to be attached to ethanol exports to relieve the high cost of RINs on domestic non-ethanol refiners. Unfortunately, Big Corn is getting everything they want with year-round E15 and there is no compromise to help out the refiners. The EPA should reconsider its approach and go back to the May compromise that would allow RINs to be attached to ethanol exports.”
