Coalition for E85 Issues Call to Action
by Cindy Zimmerman (DomesticFuel.com) The Coalition for E85 is calling on members and other supporters to urge Congress to give E85 credit for being an alternative fuel.
The coalition is asking members of Congress to support the inclusion of E85 in the Alternative Fuel Credit in the tax extenders package currently under review. In coordination with this effort, members of the Coalition for E85 will be in Washington this week to meet with their Congressional representatives to explain how E85 is defined as an alternative fuel everywhere in the U.S. code, except in the Internal Revenue Code and that amending the Alternative Fuel Tax Credit to include E85 would give the fuel the same tax status as other alternative fuels, such as compressed natural gas and propane.
