American Fuel & Petrochemical Manufacturers (AFPM) President Charles T. Drevna issued the following statement in response to today’s ruling by the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals which found the California Low Carbon Fuel Standard to be constitutional.

American Fuel & Petrochemical Manufacturers (AFPM) President Charles T. Drevna issued the following statement in response to today’s ruling by the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals which found the California Low Carbon Fuel Standard to be constitutional:

“AFPM is disappointed by the decision of a divided panel of the Ninth Circuit. The District Court explained compellingly why the California Low Carbon Fuel Standard violates the Commerce Clause of the Constitution. Although the LCFS is a California law, its broad reach and intended scope means that implementing the LCFS will have adverse consequences throughout the nation’s fuel refining facilities and supply chain far beyond California’s borders. AFPM will be evaluating its options regarding further court proceedings in upcoming weeks.”
