Kris Kiser, President and CEO of the Outdoor Power Equipment Institute, has issued a statement regarding today's announced appeal by The Engine Products Group to the U.S. Supreme Court regarding Ethanol 15:
"OPEI, as part of the Engine Products Group, has filed an appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court to review the DC Circuit Court of Appeals' claim that we did not have standing to challenge the EPA on a partial waiver for E-15. This appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court reflects the seriousness of this issue for the outdoor power equipment and small engine industry. We feel strongly that this challenge to the E-15 partial waiver needs to be considered on its merits, and not held back on a procedural issue. We will push on to protect our consumers from the engine failure and product harm that comes from mis-fueling with E-15."
