After more than 3 years of member frustration it appears that a new drag-reducing agent or DRA will be used by Kinder Morgan in its northern Nevada pipeline to prevent filter clogging. Time will tell.The 2023 legislative session will begin in February. More than 400 bill draft requests (BDRs) have been drafted so far and that number will likely exceed 1,000. The association has already identified more than 50 BDRs that could impact marketers and c-store owners if they become bills.Nevadas revised E15 regulations will be scheduled for a work-shop and public hearing in mid-October.
