A biofuels coalition is getting ready to make their case in opposition of small refinery exemptions in front of the Supreme Court next month. The coalition, made up of four groups including the American Coalition for Ethanol and the Renewable Fuels Association, filed a response brief to the court on Wednesday. The coalition argues only small refineries are continuously exempt from the Renewable Fuel Standard and last year, the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals agreed. The EPA also filed a brief in favor of the Tenth Circuit Court ruling. Oil refineries have until April 16 to reply and the oral arguments will be heard on April 27.
