Bill is introduced to cut red tape on biofuel storage tanks


Sens. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., John Hoeven, R-N.D., Roy Blunt, R-Mo., and Mike Crapo, R-Idaho, introduced a bill that would cut some of the red tape that keeps biofuels from being sold by marketers. The Domestic Fuels Act of 2012 would require the Environmental Protection Agency to develop streamlined criteria for underground tanks at fueling stations that can dispense gasoline, diesel, ethanol or a combination of fuels. "The bill would avoid unnecessary infrastructure investments by providing gasoline marketers with a commonsense certification pathway for existing equipment that assures safety while accelerating consumer access to these new fuels," said Renewable Fuels Association President and CEO Bob Dinneen.
