Maine Governor Janet Mills signed into law legislation (S.P. 86/L.D. 274) to allow the sale of ethanol-free gasoline statewide. Previously, only the counties of York, Sagadahoc, Androscoggin, Kennebec, Knox and Lincoln banned the sale of ethanol-free gasoline. The bill will go into effect in 2020.

Unfortunately, Governor Mills vetoed legislation (L.D. 822/H.P. 596) to prohibit the sale of motor fuel with greater than 10% ethanol. In her veto message, the governor noted that gasoline containing 15% ethanol is not currently available for sale in Maine.
