2020 Legislative Priorities

FUELIowa is the voice and resource for Iowa’s fuel industry. We advocate for innovative and quality fuel options, consumer and environmental protection and fairness in the marketplace.  Our members are invested in bringing the best gasoline, diesel, propane, ethanol, biodiesel and other liquid fuels to Iowans.

Allocate Funding to E15 Fueling Infrastructure

FUELIowa urges the allocation of resources to assist retailers with access to grant monies to install equipment compatible with E15. Compatible equipment is necessary to legally and safely store and dispense higher blends of ethanol to support Iowa's ag economy.

Focus UST Fund Balances on Active Businesses

As the Iowa Underground Storage Tank (UST) Cleanup Fund continues to operate without new funding, remaining monies should be prioritized to focus on active fuel marketing businesses with UST fund-eligible expenses. Narrowing this focus ensures the rural fuel distribution network is preserved as intended and the environment remains protected.   

Allow Convenience Stores to Opt Out of Bottle and Can Redemption

FUELIowa urges lawmakers to allow convenience-type businesses to voluntarily opt-out of the bottle and can redemption requirements until the law is repealed or substantially overhauled. With unprofitable redemption outlets closing, stores bear the container handling costs while distributors benefit from escheats.

Talking Points Handout

FUELIowa members include fuel distributors, cooperatives, grocery and convenience stores, truck stops, refiners, biofuel producers and many other businesses that support these companies. Together, we fuel Iowa’s economy.
