Obama Decision Likely Means Renewables Fight in Court

Posted November 24, 2014 at 5:15am

Bloomberg reports that “the Obama administration’s decision to put off issuing quotas for the use of renewable fuels this year sets up fights in Congress and the courts over a program that’s been bitterly contested for nearly a decade.”  

“The delay, announced Friday by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, follows months of fighting between refiners and ethanol producers over a proposal by the agency to lower the quotas for ethanol, biodiesel and cellulosic fuels.”  

“With the EPA nearly a year late in setting the mandates for 2014 under a Bush-era law, fuel blenders were left scratching their heads all year over how much of the additive they were supposed to be using.”
