EPA Opens RFS Comment Period

Last week, the EPA opened its public comment period on its proposed increase to the 2017 Renewable Volume Obligations (RVO) as part of the Renewable Fuel Standard. The proposal would increase the amount of E15 that must be sold next year (by at least 700 million gallons), putting countless Americans at risk of misfueling with a prohibited fuel. Public comments are critical in this process; EPA will take them into consideration before it finalizes the 2017 ethanol mandate. Therefore we must mobilize as an industry and reverse this proposal—NMMA strongly encourages all of our members and your employees to submit formal comments via Boating United by clicking here.
