An Act To Amend the Laws Governing the Prohibition on the Sale of Motor Fuel Containing Corn-based Ethanol

Be it enacted by the People of the State of Maine as follows:

Sec. 1. 10 MRSA 1457-B, sub- 2, as enacted by PL 2013, c. 249, 1, is amended to read:

2. Contingent effective date. This section does not take effect until at least 10 3 other states or a number of states with a collective population of 30,000,000 have enacted laws that prohibit the sale of motor fuel containing corn-based ethanol. The Commissioner of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry shall notify the Revisor of Statutes when 10 3 other states or a number of states having a collective population of 30,000,000 have adopted laws that prohibit the sale of motor fuel containing corn-based ethanol.

summary

Current law provides that the prohibition on the sale of motor fuel containing corn-based ethanol does not take effect until at least 10 other states or a number of states with a collective population of 30,000,000 have enacted laws that prohibit the sale of motor fuel containing corn-based ethanol. This bill amends the law to provide that this prohibition takes effect only if at least 3 other states have enacted laws that prohibit the sale of motor fuel containing corn-based ethanol.
