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.

Current dairy programs are not keeping pace with the challenges facing today’s ...

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.

DawsonLac Qui Parle County Dear Friends, As the House of Representatives begins to consider tax reform, I am reminded of the importance of certainty in the tax code to promote growth for our communities as a whole. This week, I met with several groups advocating for fair tax policies, including 3M and American Crystal Sugar. Continuing my work on the Lake of the Woods Pilot Program, I welcomed officials from U.S. Customs and Border Patrol to my office to discuss the progress being made to make it easier for tourists and resorts to explore the Boundary Wilderness. Finally, I’d like to wish everyone a happy 4th of July as we celebrate what a privilege it is to be an American. Sincerely,Congressman Collin C.
