Obama administration officials, under pressure from producers of advanced biofuels, reportedly have told industry reps that they’re considering raising the quota for their product next year above what was contained in an August draft plan.

EPA officials are said to have indicated plans to offer a range for the mandate that would allow it to increase from the 2.21B gallons set in the leaked draft plan, but the range could still leave the final quota below the 3.75B gallons set by the 2007 legislation establishing the program.
