Trump administration walks away from ethanol court battle, angering oil industry

By Rebecca Beitsch - 03/25/20 10:41 AM EDT


The Trump administration has walked away from a chance to appeal a court decision on its refinery waiver program, delivering a win to ethanol producers while angering the oil industry.

The 10th Circuit Court of Appeals had ruled that the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) program, which grants economic hardship waivers to small oil refineries that are otherwise required to blend ethanol into their supply, shortcut national goals for ethanol use.

The Trump administration had previously asked for a two-week extension to file an appeal to the case, but ultimately filed nothing before the midnight Tuesday deadline.

I guess this is picking the battles that have the most importance.

It is sad, though.
