Maine Bill to Curtail Ethanol-Blended Gasoline Awaits Senate Consideration

By SEMA Washington, D.C., Staff 

Having already been approved by the House, legislation to prohibit the sale and distribution of corn-based ethanol is pending consideration by the Maine Senate. If enacted into law, the measure would not take effect until at least two of the other New England states—Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island or Vermont—have enacted laws that prohibit the sale of motor fuel containing corn-based ethanol.
