House of Representatives committee approves E15 education amendment

WASHINGTON, D.C. — The U.S. House of Representatives’ Appropriations Committee approved an amendment to the Fiscal Year 2019 Interior, Environment and Related Agencies spending bill, June 6, calling for a public education and outreach campaign of E15 (gasoline with 15 percent ethanol).

The amendment, introduced by Rep. Andy Harris, R-Maryland, and supported by the National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA), would encourage the Environmental Protection Agency to pursue campaign educating the public on the effects of E15 on marine engines.

The bill, as a whole, would provide $35.25 billion in funding for a variety of environmental and interior programs.

Committee members adopted the Harris amendment by voice vote.
