Nunn Introduces Year-Round E15 Bill

Iowa Third District Congressman Zach Nunn introduced the Year-Round E15 Act that would allow the eight states that’ll have year-round E15 in 2025 to have it this year too.

“Let me be clear,” Nunn says on his website. “This bill wouldn’t be necessary if the Administration had done the right thing to begin with, but it’s needed to provide certainty for farmers, producers, and the families who benefit from less expensive fuel.” Nunn also says biofuels support 57,000 jobs in his home state of Iowa, which reduces pump prices and decreases greenhouse emissions by roughly 50 percent.

The bill would extend the Reid Vapor Pressure volatility waiver to ethanol blends above 10 percent to allow for year-round E15 sales in Iowa, Illinois, Missouri, Minnesota, Nebraska, Ohio, South Dakota, and Wisconsin. Don Bacon and Adrian Smith of Nebraska, Nikki Budzinski and Eric Sorenson of Illinois, and Minnesota’s Brad Finstad are co-sponsors.
