  • EPA abandons changes to U.S. biofuel program after lawmaker pressure
    EPA abandons changes to U.S. biofuel program after lawmaker pressureBy Jarrett Renshaw NEW YORK (Reuters) - The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has backed off a series of proposed changes to the nation's biofuels policy after a massive backlash from corn-state lawmakers worried the moves would undercut ethanol demand, according to a letter from the agency to lawmakers seen by Reuters. EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt said in the letter dated Oct. 19 that the agency will keep renewable fuel volume mandates for next year at or above proposed levels, reversing a previous move to open the door to cuts.
