Week 14 Update: Renewable Fuels Bill

April 14, 2022

HF 2128 requires gas stations to advertise for sale and sell E15 gasoline based on the following guidelines: one qualified motor fuel dispenser, if there is only one qualified motor fuel dispenser, or at least 50 percent of all pumps, if there is more than one. This would have to take place by the beginning of 2026. Under this bill, the Iowa Sec. of Agriculture could issue a waiver for those gas stations that are unable to comply with the requirements. The bill passed the House 82-10 in early February. It’s passed through the Senate Agriculture Committee and is currently sitting in Ways & Means. ABI is neutral on the legislation.
