An influential Minnesota voice on agriculture says he’s hopeful that Congress will pass a new farm bill this summer after efforts last year failed.
Senator Al Franken joined Dave Lee Wednesday to discuss a number of issues affecting Minnesotans.
Leaders of many farm groups in the Upper Midwest aren’t pleased that Congress has extended the current farm bill rather than pass new legislation.
A conservative Blue Dog Democrat from Minnesota who broke ranks with most members of his party by voting against a bill to avert the so-called fiscal cliff said Wednesday it fails to cut spending enough and won’t prevent another political showdown.
It looks like milk prices won’t be going up. U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar says the fiscal cliff compromise approved after midnight would extend the farm bill along with current prices for milk.
With dust clouds rising on another fall harvest, Minnesota’s dairy farmers are getting swallowed up in it.
Republican Senate candidate Kurt Bills said Wednesday he would have voted against the farm bill passed by the U.S. Senate in June, striking a major contrast with Democratic incumbent Amy Klobuchar as the two chased rural votes at an annual southwestern Minnesota agriculture trade show.
Staffers for Sen. Amy Klobuchar will be holding a series of regional meetings this week to get public input on the 2012 Farm Bill.
