A legislative proposal that would no longer require gas stations to identify ethanol blends is making its way through the legislature. Todd Sneller with the Nebraska Ethanol Board tells us it is an outdated requirement.
“To have that singled out component on there today simply provides no useful information to consumers, it did 30 years ago, it doesn’t today.”
Sneller says ethanol causes no harm in terms of health or environmental consequences like the other components of gasoline. The proposal lifting the ethanol labeling requirement awaits second round consideration in the unicameral.
