Mississippi Senator Seeks to Require Ethanol-Free Gasoline

Submitted by on February 2, 2012 – 3:46 pmNo Comment

by Kent Misegades (General Aviation News)  Mississippi State Senator Michael Watson has just introduced Senate Bill 2137, “An act to require retail dealers and distributors of gasoline to offer for sale or use nonethanol-blended unleaded premium grade gasoline.”

When asked for his motivation, the Senator from Pascagula, on Mississippi’s Gulf coast, replied: “Being from the coast, I continue to hear about my constituents having to spend money repairing their boats, lawn mowers, weed eaters, etc.  I’d heard several folks talking about the consequences of ethanol and decided to do a little digging, which ultimately lead to my drafting of this bill.”

Readers can see the full original text of the bill here, and track its progress through the Mississippi Senate here.  READ MORE
