House Science Committee Passes Sensenbrenner Bill to Test E15
Today the House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology approved Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner’s bill, H.R. 3199, by a vote of 19-7. This bill requires a comprehensive assessment of the scientific and technical research on the implications of fuel with more than 10 percent ethanol.
“I am pleased that the Committee voted today to put science before politics. When it comes to a decision of this magnitude that would impact every American who owns a car, boat, or lawnmower, we must base our decisions on sound science, not political expediency," Sensenbrenner said.
