Mike Lorenz, executive vice president for gasoline retailer Sheetz, said he plans to testify before EPW on Deb Fischer‘s E15 bill on June 14 at 10 a.m. The committee wouldn’t confirm that date, but we’ll assume it’s set. Lorenz, who lives in Pittsburgh, said he plans to be in town next Tuesday to prepare for the hearing the following day. Sheetz is the largest retailer of 15 percent ethanol fuel in the country. The hearing and eventual markup is part of an agreement between Barrasso and Fischer to win support from corn-state senators for a vote against an Obama-era methane regulation. The bill, which would allow year-round sales of E15, has been long-sought by of ethanol producers.
