EPA to Formally Consider Arkansas/North Carolina RFS Petitions
Washington, D.C., August 20, 2012 -
In a statement released today, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced it will officially consider the petitions by the governors of Arkansas and North Carolina for a waiver of the Renewable Fuels Standard. EPA indicated it would issue a Federal Register notice today opening a 30-day comment period on the waiver petition.
The agency indicated it would adhere to the 90-day timeline in deciding whether to grant the waiver request. The EPA statement went to great lengths to make it clear that opening a comment period does not provide any indication that a waiver will be granted. As you may remember, EPA in 2008 took comments on a Texas waiver petition that the agency ultimately denied.
NTF will provide comments during the 90-day period, and we also will provide members with the information they need to fully participate in the comment process.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have questions in the meantime.
