Iowa Attorney General Ends Ethanol Lawsuit After EPA Rule Change

Iowa ended its lawsuit over E15 sales after the EPA approved summertime sales of the gasoline mix, a policy change long demanded by a group of Midwestern governors whose states are top corn producers.

Iowa Attorney General Brenna Bird (R) claimed “victory” over the Biden administration now that sales of E15 gasoline, which contains 15% ethanol, will be allowed year-round, according to a Tuesday statement. The new Environmental Protection Agency rule, which eight governors requested, will take effect in 2025.
