The American Petroleum Institute and the Renewable Fuels Association have agreed on proposed legislative language that could lift existing restrictions on the year-round sale of E15 in the U.S., sources said Wednesday at the Society of Independent Gasoline Marketers of America’s annual conference in Los Angeles.

Speaking at the conference’s legislative issues briefing, the sources said that if other industry groups sign on to the proposal, then it could increase chances for congressional action and eliminate the need for a patchwork solution proposed last spring by a number of Midwest governors. Robert White, RFA’s vice president of industry relations, told SIGMA conference attendees that absent a national solution, it’s likely the Midwest governors will move forward with their plan to opt out of the E10 RVP waiver next summer.
