EPA Denies Texas RFS Waiver Request

The EPA today denied the request made by Texas Governor Rick Perry for a waiver of the Renewable Fuels Standard.

EPA is denying Texas’ waiver request because the evidence in this case does not support a determination that implementation of the RFS mandate during the time period at issue (September 1, 2008 through August 31, 2009) would severely harm the economy of a State, region, or the United States.

The EPA has a page setup that provides background information on this issue and further explanation of their decision.

A great ruling. How could they possibly go any other way? All of the credible studies supported the RFS. Besides the standard for this year has already been reached.
