USDA Secretary Clarifies E15 Comments

Cindy Zimmerman

Two days before he appeared at the Commodity Classic last week, Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue told the House Agriculture Committee that rules allowing the use of E15 year round “probably will not be out for the driving season,” but he says newly confirmed EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler has “figured out” how to get it done by June 1.

Perdue says that while Wheeler had told him recently that they would not be able to get the rule done in time because of the government shut down, in the face of final confirmation votes last week, “his people found a way to do that.”

Listen to Perdue’s E15 comments during his remarks and at a subsequent press conference.
