2018 PMCI Legislative Positions
 
The recent shortfalls in the state budget and impending elections for some state Senators and Representatives will impact what is considered this year by legislators. PMCI is ready to ensure your needs are represented at the statehouse. Heading into session, our legislative positions for this year include:

Fuel Tax Credits

PMCI supports retail fuel tax credits that have been instrumental in advancing the use of cleaner, renewable home-grown biofuels.  Two years ago, statewide research used by the legislature to review and renew these credits demonstrated these incentives were effective and should be kept in place through 2021.  Eliminating or modifying these credits before the market for such fuels has been established could set back the growth and jeopardize investments made by fuel marketers based on the certainty of these tax credits.

Iowa Motor Fuel Labeling

PMCI supports changing Iowa’s motor fuel labeling laws to be consistent with federal regulations for mid- and high-level ethanol blends of fuel.  Currently, state and federal regulations conflict, exposing Iowa retailers to criminal fines and potential liability for consumers who improperly fuel a vehicle.

UST Program

PMCI has long supported Iowa’s UST clean-up program for the remediation of contaminated soil and preservation of Iowa’s rural fuel distribution network. PMCI believes UST fund monies should continue to be used for these purposes.

Bottle & Can Tax

PMCI supports replacing the current bottle and can tax program with a more efficient, safe and economical comprehensive recycling program that protects the environment and public health.
