A bill just introduced in the Senate would level the playing field for vehicles running on low-carbon liquid fuels like ethanol by properly recognizing the emissions benefits associated with using E85 flex fuels (which contain 51-83 percent ethanol).

U.S. Senator Pete Ricketts (R-NE) introduced the bipartisan Flex Fuel Fairness Act last week along with Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN). Ricketts participated in a roundtable Monday in Lincoln with members of the Nebraska Ethanol Board and other biofuels stakeholders, including the Renewable Fuels Association, which had its Flex Fuel PHEV project car on display.
