Florida Bill to Eliminate Ethanol Requirement Approved by House

By SEMA Washington, D.C., Staff 

Legislation to repeal the requirement that all gasoline offered for sale in the state contain a percentage of ethanol was approved by the House of Representatives on a 77–39 vote. Currently, the Florida Renewable Fuels Standard requires that all gasoline sold or offered for sale by a terminal supplier, importer, blender or wholesaler in Florida contain 9%–10% ethanol, or other alternative fuel, by volume. The bill will now be sent to two Senate committees for consideration.
