English/Grammar

There's something wrong with this sentence but I can't put my finger on it!!

The federal government has put into effect a mandate that requires all gasoline in Canada to contain 5 percent ethanol.

  • English/Grammar -

    Maybe another "that" after "requires"?? The "...that ____ that..." bothers me though. Too many 'that's!

  • English/Grammar -

    and if another "that" was added then "to" would change to "must", I guess?

  • English/Grammar -

    The sentence looks fine the way you typed it the first time. You don't need another "that" in this sentence.

  • English/Grammar -

    The only thing I'd do to the original sentence is to remove "to" before "contain."
