Rumors swirl that EPA will appeal SRE ruling
A leading biofuels group is hearing that the Trump Administration plans to appeal a recent 10th Circuit Court decision that found the EPA abused its authority in granting Small Refinery Exemptions.
Chris Bliley with Growth Energy tells Brownfield if true, it’s very disappointing.
“The President really needs to understand that Senator Cruz doesn’t care about this administration, or families across the Heartland who are counting on the White House to keep its promises.”
Texas Senator Ted Cruz is urging the Administration to appeal the ruling.
Bliley says if that occurs, Growth Energy expects the EPA to withhold any action on 2019 small refinery exemptions.
“We felt like it was a clear decision from the 10th Circuit, and it really outlined EPA’s misuse of the program.”
Bliley says while nothing official has been issued, the EPA is facing impending deadlines within the next week.
