A series of informal events called “Say No to Calfornia Car Mandate” are being held across Southern Minnesota this month in opposition to Gov. Tim Walz’ proposed plan to adopt a set of auto emission and electric vehicles regulations aimed at fighting climate change. Thursday, the organizers brought the presentation to New Ulm’s Country Club. The program included presentations from the President of the Minnesota Automobile Dealers Association Scott Lambert and a video presentation energy expert from a conservative Minnesota-based think tank, Center of the American Experiment, Isaac Orr. Through a series of meetings the organization is trying to raise opposition to Walz’s proposed vehicle regulations. The group’s chief concerns are that if the Walz plan is implemented, regulations made for California would decide what type of cars were available in Minnesota.
