Rep. Fred Upton (R-Mich.), the chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, plans to take another stab at moving legislation that would alter the renewable fuel standard in 2015, a Republican committee aide said July 24.

While earlier committee efforts to modify the requirement stalled in 2013, the aide said expected litigation over the Environmental Protection Agency's yet-to-be-released blending requirements for 2014 would motivate stakeholders to “come to the table” and cooperate, the aide said.
