Ag groups in Minnesota are suing over zero-emission mandate

Minnesota ag groups are suing the state over its adoption of California’s zero-emission vehicle mandate which is forcing automakers to make more zero-emission vehicles available to dealers by 2025.

Groups like the Minnesota Soybean Growers Association warn farmers will eventually lose their biodiesel market if the mandate stands.

That market generates nearly $2 billion dollars in the state and supports more than 5,000 jobs.
Since last year, seventeen states have adopted California’s mandate.
