Wheeler discusses SREs at House hearing

EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler

EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler, testifying before a House Energy Subcommittee Thursday, said he could not confirm a recent report that EPA plans to reduce the number of small refinery exemptions (SREs) granted to oil refineries.

“We’re still
in discussions with the Department of Justice, trying to analyze the Tenth
Circuit opinion,” Wheeler said. “We have no announcements at this time.”

Wheeler was
referring to the court ruling which said EPA overstepped its authority in
granting three SREs for the 2016 compliance year.
