Florida Bill to Eliminate Ethanol Requirement Sent to Governor

By SEMA Washington, D.C., Staff

Legislation to repeal the requirement that all gasoline offered for sale in the state contain a percentage of ethanol was approved by the Senate on a 33–1 vote. Currently, the Florida Renewable Fuels Standard requires that all gasoline sold or offered for sale by a terminal supplier, importer, blender or wholesaler in Florida contain 9%–10% ethanol, or other alternative fuel, by volume. The SEMA-supported bill has been sent to Governor Scott to be signed into law.
