Iowa ag bails out of E15 lawsuit against EPA

Iowa is bailing out of a lawsuit against the EPA after the Agency took much-awaited action on year-round sales of E15.

Last August, Iowa Attorney General Brenna Bird signed on to a lawsuit against the EPA. She and neighboring Nebraska argued the Agency was taking too long to decide on summer sales of E15 in several Midwestern states. Those states made the proposal a year prior in April of 2022.

Just recently, EPA granted that proposal and approved year-round sales of E15 in several Midwestern states. Bird has said she will be dropping the suit.
