House lawmakers want to require the Environmental Protection Agency to reallocate gallons of biofuels lost to small refinery waivers. House Agriculture Committee Ranking Member Collin Peterson recently introduced a bipartisan bill called “Restoring Our Commitment to the Renewable Fuels Act.” The legislation states the EPA Administrator shall reallocate each gallon of renewable fuel covered by exemption to refiners, blenders, distributors and importers subject to a renewable fuel obligation for that calendar year.

In a statement, Peterson says the bill will keep EPA accountable for maintaining RVOs set each year.
