Kansas Governor Passes New Bill Encouraging Ethanol Use.

The office of Kansas governor Kathleen Sebelius recently announced the signing of Senate Bill (SB) 56, which removes the requirement that every retail pump for motor vehicle fuels be labeled to show the content and percent of any ethyl alcohol or other alcohol additive.

The office of the governor said it is commonly believed that such labels discourage the use of gasoline containing ethanol.

"Ethanol burns cleaner and it is made right here in Kansas, so it helps both our environment and our economy," said Sebelius. "This bill is good for Kansas and it is good for the United States, because the increased use of ethanol helps us reduce our dependence on foreign oil."
