CONCORD, N.H. (July 7, 2014) — Legislation to prohibit the sale of gasoline that contains more than 10 percent ethanol died when the New Hampshire legislature adjourned for the year.

According to the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA), the bill was approved by the state’s House of Representatives but stalled in the Senate when the legislation was sent out for study.

Under a House committee amendment, the bill would have only taken effect if any two additional New England states adopted similar legislation limiting the amount of corn-based ethanol in gasoline to 10 percent, SEMA’s Washington, D.C., staff reported.
