House Bill 464 requires the Department of Labor and Statistics to adopt standards and specifications ensuring that all gasoline sold to consumers for use in motor vehicles must be blended with 10 percent denatured ethanol and may not contain more than trace amounts of the additive commonly known as MTBE. The bill exempts airplanes authorized to use gasoline.
AOPA is opposed to this bill for the following reasons:
Senate Bill 1004 provides that, beginning on April 1, 2010, gasoline for motor vehicle use sold in Idaho must be blended with at least 10 percent by volume agriculturally derived denatured ethanol. The bill exempts airplanes authorized to use gasoline.
AOPA thanks our members for their continued support in protecting the freedom to fly.
