Ethanol Facility License

SECTION 81.   Section 14 of chapter 91 of the General Laws, as appearing in the 2010 Official Edition, is hereby amended by adding the following paragraph:-

An ethanol storage or blending facility that stores or blends or is intended to store or blend more than an average of 5,000 gallons of ethanol per day and is located within 1 mile of a census block that has a population density of greater than 4,000 people per square mile shall not be granted a license under this chapter. For the purposes of this section, ethanol shall be defined as any mixture composed of not less than 30 per cent ethanol.

Veto Explanation:
I am vetoing this section because it would have unintended consequences for fuel suppliers and interfere with existing marine terminal operations.
