Clinton adviser declines to Discuss Reversing Ethanol Mandate

Hillary Clinton’s energy adviser refused Wednesday to discuss reforming the nation’s ethanol mandate, after a former Obama adviser said reforms would be advisable under a new Democratic administration. “I’ll take a pass,” Trevor Houser said during a Politico energy forum held on the sidelines of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.

Houser’s response followed a recommendation by President Obama’s former climate and energy adviser, Heather Zichal, on how a new Democratic administration should act to fix what she admitted was a broken Environmental Protection Agency Renewable Fuel Standard.

Houser was asked by the forum’s moderator to respond to Zichal’s comments, which he declined.
