Senator wants sane regulation.

Ethanol Mandates Must End Say Workers — Sen Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) and Congressman Pat Meehan (R-Pa7)  met with employees at Monroe Energy’s Trainer refinery in Delaware County to hear their that ethanol mandates must end.

The government’s Renewable Fuel Standard mandate requires fuel suppliers like those in Trainer and Philadelphia to blend millions of gallons of biofuels – notably corn ethanol – into the nation’s gasoline supplies.

“This corporate welfare for the ethanol industry harms the viability of good paying jobs, drives up gas prices, increases food costs, and harms the environment,” Toomey said.

Toomey is a co-sponsor of the Renewable Fuel Standard Repeal Act (S. 1195) that would end such mandates.
