"Watchdog Dings EPA On Ethanol Impacts"

"The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has not properly analyzed the environmental effects of its ethanol mandate, a watchdog report found Thursday.

The 2005 law creating the renewable fuel standard requires the EPA to write reports on the environmental impacts of the requirement to blend ethanol and other biofuels with gasoline, and to determine whether measures are needed to blunt the effects.

But the EPA’s Office of Inspector General (OIG) found the agency’s compliance with those provisions lacking."
