Senators introduce Defend the Blend companion bill

Legislation that would stop the EPA from retroactively lowering biofuel blending requirements is making headway in Washington.  The House introduced the Defend the Blend Act on November 23rd, where it’s been referred to the House Committee on Energy and Commerce.  Tuesday, the Senate introduced a bipartisan companion bill backed by Senators Chuck Grassley and Joni Ernst of Iowa, Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota, and Tammy Duckworth of Illinois.
