Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley tells the Red River Farm Network he’s been impressed with the amount of conversation between USDA, the EPA and the White House on an E15 compromise in the last month. However, Grassley couldn’t confirm if announcement on offering E15 year-round will happen next week in Council Bluffs, Iowa. “Hopefully the White House will make an announcement before the end of the year. Then we’ll know by next summer if E15 can be sold 12 months out of the year.” Grassley says refineries have what they want, but RIN prices are down and E15 still isn’t available.
