The Victorian Farmers Federation (VFF) wants the voluntary car emissions payments, made under the State Government's Climate Change Action Plan, to go towards the development of rail infrastructure.
Drivers will be able to pay about $80 to offset the annual emissions of their cars, as part of the Government's plan to cut emissions by 20 per cent in the next 10 years.
VFF president Andrew Broad says that money should go towards the creation of better rail freight infrastructure.
"I would like to see the expenditure of this voluntary fund be put into some major infrastructure that will reduce emissions," he said.
"We have no doubt that we're going to move to big freight needs in the future and I think if we're going to maintain our standard of living, why not use some of that money to put into rail infrastructure which does take trucks off roads."
