Peterson Urges Farm Bill Action

On January 3, I sent letters to House Speaker John Boehner and Majority Leader Eric Cantor seeking a commitment to bring a farm bill to the floor of the House during the 113th Congress. Republican Leadership repeatedly refused to consider the House Agriculture Committee’s bipartisan five-year farm bill last year. Without assurances from Leadership, I do not see any reason for the House Agriculture Committee to again go through the process of writing a new five-year farm bill.

Peterson Honored as Guardian of Small Business

Congressman Collin C. Peterson was recently awarded the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) Guardian of Small Business Award for the 112th Congress. This award is given to members of Congress based on their small business voting record. “Having started a small business myself I understand the difficulties small business owners face. In this economy especially I believe it is important to stand up for small businesses and their employees,” Peterson said.

Visit to Sunshine Dairy

Collin visited Sunshine Dairy in ARLINGTON on August 14. This family dairy partnership is operated by Ron and Pam Krueger and Scott and Stephanie Krueger. The Krueger family has received numerous awards from their milk-marketing cooperative, and in the past three years, they were twice named the top milk-producing herd in the county.
