This week, in response to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's pending decision on the Growth Energy waiver petition on E15, the National Marine Manufacturers Association, BoatU.S. and a number of other organizations sent a letter to administration officials urging them to base their decision on sound, scientific data.

"We urge EPA to base its decision on a complete and sound scientific record, and we urge DOE to help provide this science by spending all of the $15 million targeted for expanding and accelerating mid-level ethanol blends research in the 2010 appropriations bill ...," the letter states.

The full letter can be viewed here.
