NEW YORK (Reuters) – U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Andrew Wheeler told a biofuels company in a phone call on Thursday that the agency is working to address industry concerns over biofuel blending requirements that have sparked outrage across the Farm Belt, according to a source familiar with the matter.
The EPA plans to send a proposal on 2020 blending mandates to the White House’s Office of Management and Budget by the end of the week, according to two sources familiar with the matter.
