ADMINISTRATION TO LIFT E15 SUMMERTIME BAN, PRESIDENT TO ANNOUNCE IN IOWA TODAY
Agri-Pulse reports:

President Joe Biden will be in Iowa today for a speech at a POET bioethanol facility, where he is set to announce a lifting of the ban on summertime E15 sales.

A senior administration official told reporters Monday the administration plans to use emergency authority to allow for the fuel to continue to be sold after the current June 1 cutoff. The Environmental Protection Agency will make the move official in a waiver closer to the beginning of June.

The move will satisfy calls from a long list of members of Congress, ag trade associations, and others who have called on the Biden administration to allow summertime sales of the fuel that were restored following a 2021 court ruling.

In a statement Monday, Iowa Republican Chuck Grassley, one of the most vocal biofuel supporters in the Senate, said he was confident "Iowa biofuel producers can ramp up production and provide affordable, low-carbon biofuels to the country if the president allows summer sales of E15."
