Florida bill to end ethanol gas sent to governor

Posted on May 3, 2013

The Florida Senate has approved legislation to repeal the requirement that all gasoline offered for sale in the state contain a percentage of ethanol by a 33–1 vote, according to the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA).

The SEMA-supported bill has been sent to Governor Rick Scott to be signed into law.

Currently, the Florida Renewable Fuels Standard requires that all gasoline sold or offered for sale by a terminal supplier, importer, blender or wholesaler in Florida contain 9%–10% ethanol, or other alternative fuel, by volume.

For more information, visit the SEMA Action Network (SAN) website.
