New Hampshire Bill to Prohibit Ethanol Blended Gasoline at Levels Greater Than 10% Dies as Legislature Adjourns

Legislation (H.B. 1220) to prohibit a person from selling gasoline that contains more than 10% ethanol died when the legislature adjourned for the year.  The bill had been approved by the New Hampshire House of Representatives, but stalled in the Senate when the bill was sent out for study.  Under a House committee amendment, the bill would have only taken effect if any two additional New England states adopted similar legislation limiting the amount of corn based ethanol in gasoline to 10 percent. 

Thank you to those who participated in supporting this bill!
