Tell EPA to follow through on RFS Commitment
After months of political pressure - including hearing from farmers like you - the Trump Administration finally agreed to follow the law and replace ethanol blending waived through refinery exemptions going forward. 
 
While EPA will begin to account for waivers to keep the RFS whole, EPA proposed to use a three-year average of how much the Department of Energy (DOE) recommended in waivers, rather than a three-year average of what EPA actually waived, to project waivers next year.  EPA has consistently waived nearly double the gallons the DOE recommended.  Recent history suggests this approach means EPA is likely to continue shortchanging the RFS statute that provides for 15 billion gallons of ethanol to be blended.  
 
The recent expansion of RFS waivers has reduced RFS requirements by more than 4 billion gallons over three years.  In the past marketing year, corn use for ethanol production has fallen by 229 million bushels.
 
EPA’s proposal to redistribute future waived gallons is half of what the President committed to. Tell the EPA to follow the RFS law and hold up their end of the deal. The deadline for comments is November 29. Please send your comment to EPA today!
