Take Action: Contact Congress and Stop E15

Last week, a bipartisan group of Congress introduced legislation to reform the ethanol mandate and stop E15 from spreading across the country. The bill, HR 704, is championed by the National Marine Manufacturers Association and a diverse coalition of stakeholder groups and has already received strong support in Washington but it needs more to have a real impact. The NMMA urges you to contact your local representative and ask him/her to co-sponsor HR 704 by taking less than two minutes to submit a pre-completed letter. With your help, the bill can move forward, stopping the continued spread of E15 across the United States (now in 16 states and counting!).
