EPA Delivers Proposed Rule with 2020 RVOs, ‘Other Changes’ to OMB

The U.S. EPA has delivered a proposed rule to set 2020 renewable blending obligations (RVOs) under the Renewable Fuel Standard to the White House Office of Management and Budget. The proposed rule also includes the 2021 RVO for biomass-based diesel and “other changes” to the RFS program. OMB review marks a final step before a proposed rule is released for public comment.

Information posted to the OMB website shows the proposed rule was delivered on May 6. The posting, however, does not include any additional information on what “other changes” to the RFS program the rulemaking might include.
