Rep. Peterson pushes regulatory reform bill ...

... to ‘reduce unnecessary burden on job creators’ Rep. Collin Peterson is pushing a regulatory reform package that has CEOs singing praises and good government groups concerned. The Regulatory Accountability Act of 2011 would reform the way federal agencies make rules in order to “reduce unnecessary burdens on job creators.” Opponents of the bill, which was introduced Thursday, say it will stifle health, safety and environmental standards. Under the proposed legislation, a new regulation would need to have advanced public notice and public comment and be based on ...

Peterson says Safety Net for Dairy Industry is Crucial

The following article is an op-ed article from House Agriculture Committee Ranking Member Collin C. Peterson, D-Minn. concerning the dairy industry and the issue of improving the dairy program. "It has been nearly three years since the combination of declining milk prices and escalating input costs devastated the dairy industry. Many producers were forced out of business while others just barely managed to survive. The dairy safety net did not work in 2009 and it won’t work if similar events occur now. Current dairy programs are not keeping pace with the challenges facing today’s ...

Peterson, Simpson Introduce The Dairy Security Act of 2011

U.S. House Agriculture Committee Ranking Member Collin C. Peterson, D-Minn., and Rep. Mike Simpson, R-Idaho, today introduced The Dairy Security Act of 2011. The legislation will replace current, outdated dairy programs with new risk management tools addressing the realities of today’s dairy industry, such as rising input costs and a growing export market. “If we have another crisis like we had in 2009, when milk prices dropped and input costs skyrocketed, I fear we could lose half our dairies. The dairy safety net did not work then and it won’t work if similar events occur ...

Peterson votes no on the American Health Care Act
Congressman Collin C. Peterson today voted “no” on the American Health Care Act, citing concerns it will have on his district. He made the following statement: “The healthcare bill that passed the House today is even worse than the bill that was introduced two months ago. Like the previous bill, this legislation won’t help the people in the middle who are struggling with skyrocketing premiums and unaffordable deductibles. It also jeopardizes the protections for people with pre-existing conditions that so many people from my district need to keep their coverage,” Peterson said. “Over the last few months I met with hospitals, doctors and constituents from across the district with concerns about the bill, including the significant cuts to Medicaid funding and eligibility which would hurt our state. This political exercise today only delays the inevitable bipartisan work which will be needed to fix our healthcare system.”

A café gardenGranite Falls Dear Friends, This week is National Small Business Week, which is a great opportunity for us to acknowledge the positive impact small businesses make throughout the United States. I met the National Grocers Association, the Small Business Administration, Minnesota Beer Wholesalers, and the Independent Community Bankers Association on critical tax policy changes needed to better support our economy. I also heard from the National Milk Producers Federation and other dairy producers to discuss an update on the latest farm policy issues, sat down with Growth Energy and EPA Administrator Pruitt to discuss leveling the playing field for ethanol sales, and addressed the National Association of Farm Broadcasting. Finally, I would like to offer my condolences to the tribal members of Red Lake Nation for their loss of a friend and Tribal Secretary, Donald Cook. Sincerely,Congressman Collin C.

John Denver’s Country Road   Dear Friends, On Saturday, I will be co-hosting a town hall in Spicer on the current opioid crisis and healthcare concerns facing Minnesotans. With partisanship at an all-time high, it’s more important now than ever to reach across the aisle. In the spirit of bipartisanship, I am encouraging folks to visit with State Representative Baker, State Senator Lang, and myself tomorrow. As I have been traveling around the District this week, I am continually impressed with Minnesotans’ desire to get involved and make a difference, and I believe that we need local, state, and federal stakeholders working together to address this public health crisis.
