House Committee Approves Ethanol Study Bill
The United States House of Representatives Committee on Science, Space, and Technology approved a bill that would require the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to conduct a comprehensive study on the E-15 gasoline fuel blends. The committee approved the bill, HR 875, by a vote of 18-17.
Committee Chairman had this to say, "Time and again, we see instances where American businesses are unnecessarily harmed by the EPA's regulatory and political agenda." Both the American Petroleum Institute and the Environmental Working Group, two organizations that do not often agree, back Mr. Sensenbrenner's E15 bill. The American Automobile Association (AAA), as well as groups representing snowmobile, boat and motorcycle owners also support the bill.
Motorcycle champion, James Sensenbrenner (R-WI), authors HR 875.
