A bipartisan group of lawmakers has introduced a bill in the House of Representatives that would scrap the requirement to blend 15 billion gallons of corn ethanol by 2022 and prohibit the sale of fuel containing more than 10% ethanol. Bob Dinneen, president and CEO of the Renewable Fuels Association, said the motive for the bill was "backwards, silly, circular logic," and that the measure would drive away investors. "This is just a smokescreen for going after the one alternative fuel and the one policy that has fundamentally disrupted oil industry control of the marketplace while saving consumers money at the pump," he said.
