CEA Statement on Wisconsin’s Commonsense Decision to Abandon an LCFS

CEA president: Dismissal of the LCFS provision is a “key victory” for Wisconsin consumers

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Earlier today, Wisconsin media reported that Low-Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS) provisions were dropped from the state’s Clean Energy Jobs Act currently being considered in the legislature. David Holt, president of Consumer Energy Alliance (CEA), issued this statement in response:

“The removal of the economy-killing LCFS is good news for consumers in the Badger State and we are pleased that Wisconsin’s legislators have woken up to the harsh realities associated with this dangerous proposal. By discriminating against Canadian fuels, an LCFS would restrict Wisconsin fuel supplies, raise gas and diesel prices at the pump and expand our dependence on energy from some of the most unfriendly regions of the world. The decision to drop the LCFS provisions from this bill is an important signal regarding the viability of low carbon fuel standards nationwide – and is particularly important to Wisconsin, which gets nearly half of its oil from our neighbors to the north.

“Unfortunately, the threat of an LCFS still exists in many other parts of the country, including those states that comprise the Midwestern Governors Association (MGA), of which Wisconsin’s governor is a member. CEA encourages the members of the MGA to understand that discriminating against Canadian fuel supplies is bad energy policy. As CEA continues to educate the public about the dangerous realities of adopting LCFS schemes, we trust that more state and national policymakers will take notice and follow Wisconsin’s lead by rejecting these misguided proposals.”
