The Senate Ag committee is going to hear SB 52 on March 19 at 1 pm, rm 212 at the Capitol.
SB52 is the ethanol bill that will start the phase out of our E-10.
We do not want this stuff out in the market until we get congress to mandate a comprehensive, independent study of the effects that E-15 will bring to our motorcycles and cars and trucks.
