Gregg introduces bipartisan bill to reduce tariff on imported ethanol

Republican New Hampshire Senator Judd Gregg has introduced a bipartisan measure with Democrat Dianne Feinstein of California to reduce the tariff on imported ethanol.

If it passes, Gregg says the legislation would allow U.S. refiners to buy cheaper and more climate-friendly ethanol from foreign sources, which could then help lower gas prices.

Gregg says imported ethanol is especially important for coastal states since almost all domestic ethanol is produced in the Midwest and is costly to transport because it can’t be moved through a pipeline.

He says ethanol from Brazil and other friendly nations can be provided to coastal states more easily and at a lower cost.
