Default E15 canned again

Quote:
According to The Detroit News, the U.S. House of Representatives has voted to block the Environmental Protection Agency from moving toward a higher blend of ethanol in America's gasoline. Representatives voted 286-135 against allowing the EPA to issue a waiver that would allow gas stations to sell E15. Currently, fueling stations are only allowed to sell E10, which contains up to 10 percent of the biofuel. The new legislation would allow a 50-percent increase in the amount of ethanol sold in each gallon of gasoline. Representative John Sullivan (R-Oklahoma) attached an amendment to the bill to provide funding for the U.S. government through September, effectively killing the legislation.

While The Renewable Fuels Association criticized the decision to stop the E15 waiver, several groups were thoroughly against the increase in ethanol. Those include everyone from the Specialty Equipment Market Association to the American Bakers Association.

The EPA has already approved E15 for vehicles made after 2001, but some groups worry that a higher blend across the board could wind up corroding older engines. Meanwhile, proponents of the increase claim that larger ethanol quantities will help lower America's dependence on foreign oil.

Lets hope it's more than a passing moment of clarity...

I'm dying to know why the American Bakers Association would be opposed to it...

I would guess one of 2 things:
1) Increased ethanol means increased arable land planted in corn which makes wheat prices higher.
2) There's a bunch of bread delivered each day to stores. Possibly considering all their members truck fleets (assuming there not diesel- never paid any attention). It's probably 1 anyways.

wheat subsidies are huge, so I'd assume there's a pretty big wheat lobby as well.

personally, I think the EPA needs to invest in finding other sources of energy that use less land to create the energy. EPA after-all, was created to protect us from becoming dependent on foreign fuels.
