Legislation allowing the state’s Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity to provide information to gas stations encouraging them to offer E15 as an option for customers died when the legislature adjourned for the year. The bill also allowed the department to provide information to gas stations on any financial assistance available to subsidize the cost of providing E15-blended fuel to consumers. The SEMA-opposed bill was introduced at a time when many states are proposing SEMA-supported legislation to abandon requirements for ethanol-blended gasoline.
