Peterson (D-MN), Rodney Davis (R-IL), Dave Loebsack (D-IA), and Roger Marshall (R-KS) led a letter to Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Andrew Wheeler regarding the EPA’s proposed rulemaking involving modifications to the Reid Vapor Pressure (RVP) waiver for 15 percent ethanol (E15) and regulatory changes to the Renewable Identification Number (RIN) market.
