EPA Decision on RFS to Be Announced

Highly anticipated decision will be made known Thursday.

Thursday at , Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Stephen Johnson and Principal Deputy Assistant Administrator Robert Meyers will announce the EPA decision on the request from Texas Governor Rick Perry for a waiver of the Renewable Fuel Standard. Perry asked that the RFS blending requirements be cut by 50%. EPA accepted public comments on the request and received so many, they postponed announcing a decision until they could fully assess the comments. Producers, traders and the ethanol industry have been anxiously awaiting the decision since the delay was announced on July 24.
