Biden Administration Heeds Baldwin’s Calls to Sell E15 Fuel and Support Wisconsin Agriculture

E15 and biofuels reduce the price at the pump and support Wisconsin’s farmers, producers, and rural communities

WISCONSIN – U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin is applauding the Biden administration for heeding her calls and announcing that they will expand the sale of E15 fuel to be sold during the summer months. In March, Senator Baldwin and a group of Democratic and Republican colleagues called on the Biden administration to permit the year-round sale of E15 fuel in 2023. Senator Baldwin also joined a bipartisan group of colleagues in introducing legislation to allow the year-round, nationwide sale of ethanol blends higher than 10%. Senator Baldwin has long advocated for more permanent biofuel regulations to help lower fuel prices, support farmers and producers, and provide the needed certainty in fuel markets.

“American biofuels are a homegrown energy solution that support Wisconsin’s farmers and producers, help drive down the price at the pump, and reduce our dependence on foreign oil,” said Senator Baldwin. “I applaud the Biden administration’s action to ensure cleaner E15 fuel is available this summer, supporting jobs in rural communities and moving our Made in Wisconsin economy forward.”

Today, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency issued an emergency fuel waiver to allow E15 gasoline to be sold during the summer driving season.
