Ethanol Groups Challenge LFCS

Both the Renewable Fuels Association and Growth Energy are challenging California’s Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS) in federal court. They are charging that the LCFS violates both the Supremacy Clause and the Commerce Clause of the U.S. Constitution.

“The LCFS contradicts the sound judgment of Congress when it passed the 2007 Energy Independence Security Act and singled out the importance of domestic ethanol for our nation’s environment, energy security, and economy. The LCFS erects new regulatory obstacles to ethanol, frustrates the federal Renewable Fuel Standard, and threatens the nationwide market for domestic ethanol. Because congressional policy cannot coexist with California’s regulation, the latter must give way to the former, the supreme law of the land.”
