Summary

                            A bill to amend the Clean Air Act with respect to the ethanol waiver for Reid vapor pressure limitations under such Act.

Introduced in Senate
Consumer and Fuel Retailer Choice Act

This bill amends the Clean Air Act to address the limitations on Reid vapor
pressure (a measure of gasoline's volatility) that are placed on gasoline during
the summer ozone season. The bill applies the Reid vapor pressure requirements
that are applicable to gasoline blended with 10% ethanol (E10) to gasoline
blended with more than 10% ethanol. Thus, the waiver given to E10 gasoline,
which allows an increase in the Reid Vapor Pressure volatility, is extended to
gasoline blended with more than 10% ethanol.
