Minnesota's biodiesel mandate unfairJuly 14, 2014 - 9:35ambusiness/agriculture
BLAINE, Minn. -- On July 1, by an act of the 2014 Minnesota Legislature, many, but not all, Minnesota diesel users were required to purchase diesel blends containing at least 10 percent biodiesel. The trucking industry believes consumers will bear the cost of this doubling of the state's mandate through higher prices for transportation and goods.
The biodiesel industry does not need a mandate now. It is mature and can stand on its own.
