ADWM Biofuels and General Fuel Quality Workshop and Proposed Rules
ADWM has distributed proposed rules as discussed in the Biofuels Stakeholder sessions that occurred in July and August. This includes proposed revisions to portions of Arizona Administrative Code Title 20 regarding requirements for producers, blenders, suppliers and motor fuel dispensing facilities for the production, blending, distribution and sale of biofuels. Additional revisions will update or better align the rules with Handbooks 44, 130 and 133 (2014 editions). You can access the proposed revisions here. ADWM will hold a Stakeholder Workshop on Friday, November 21, 2014 at 9:00 am at ADWM Offices (4425 W. Olive Avenue, Suite 134, Glendale, AZ 85302).

This fall, APMA started APMA PAC – a state political action committee. This entity supports state level candidate campaigns for those who understand and support the issues of the petroleum marketing industry. Our goal is that when any legislator or regulator thinks about potential legislation or rules that will affect our industry, they call APMA to get our input first. Your support is greatly needed as we get this fund up and running!
SUPPORT APMA PAC today (we can accept one-time or recurring credit card contributions online)
PMAA, our national association, also runs a federal political action committee. Our support of this fund will help elect individuals who are supportive of small business and independent petroleum marketers; support PMAA’s legislative and regulatory agenda; and remind legislators that petroleum marketers are a political force. PMAA is closing in on its fundraising goal for the year – one last push of support will get us there!
Both APMA PAC and PMAA SBC PAC are vital tools to fight for our industry. When legislators go to bat on our issues, it is essential that we assist them in securing re-election. Personal (not corporate) funds are required for both PACs.
With 2014 elections next week, APMA is reminding the membership of our endorsed candidates for state legislative races. For more information, please contact APMA Executive Director Amanda Gray.
