HB 2039 -- Weights and Measures
This bill requires that 50% of gasoline sold in Missouri after
August 28, 2003, contain at least twenty-seven thousandths
oxygen by weight. After August 28, 2005, the requirement is
increased to 75%. Then after August 28, 2007, all gasoline sold
in Missouri must contain this amount of oxygen.
Exceptions to the oxygenate requirement include airports,
marinas, mooring facilities, resorts, public or private racing
facilities, historic vehicles, off-road vehicles, motorcycles,
boats, snowmobiles, small engines, and unleaded premium grade
The bill also exempts any area of the state subject to the
requirements of the federal reformulated gasoline program, but
only during the times of the year when oxygenated gasoline does
not meet such requirements.
The bill provides for labeling, inspection, sampling,
adulteration, record keeping, transport, and storage
Nothing in the bill is intended to result in any violation of
the Federal Clean Air Act, as amended, 42 U.S.C. 7401, et seq.
