Odds Rising for RFS Reform Push in Congress
Congress, frustrated with EPA’s delays in announcing details of the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) volume requirements, could amend the RFS this year. EPA failed to finalize its renewable fuel standard rule for 2014, and the standards for 2015 are already overdue. The EPA plans to issue rules for 2014, 2015 and 2016 this year. However, whether or not a likely RFS reform push can get through Congress is murky.
