Congress Holds Hearing on Domestic Fuels Act


Ira Wexler/NATSO

Last week the House Committee on Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Environment and the Economy held a hearing on the Domestic Fuels Protection Act, H.R. 4345, which would remove roadblocks that currently are preventing retailers from considering whether to sell new fuels, including gasoline with 15 percent ethanol (E15).

Specifically, H.R. 4345 would provide fuel retailers with the opportunity to sell new fuels; prevent many retailers across the country from needlessly replacing equipment; protect innocent parties from certain liabilities associated with misfueling; and establish that an entity that complies with today’s laws and regulations cannot be held retroactively liable. A similar Senate version, S. 2264, the Domestic Fuels Act, was introduced on March 29.
