Pennsylvania Bill to Eliminate Ethanol Requirement in Gasoline Approved by Committee; Moves to House Floor

By SEMA Washington, D.C., Staff

Legislation to remove the requirement that gasoline offered for sale in the state contain a percentage of ethanol was approved on a 23–3 vote by the House Environmental Resources and Energy Committee. 

Currently, the state requires that “All gasoline sold or offered for sale to ultimate consumers in this Commonwealth must contain at least 10% cellulosic ethanol by volume . . .”  After a stop in the Appropriations Committee, the bill will then be considered in a vote by all House members.
