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 The legislation will replace current, outdated dairy programs with new risk management tools addressing the realities of today’s dairy industry, such as rising input costs and a growing export market.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 ...

River WalkThief River Falls Dear Friends, As the recovery from Hurricane Harvey continues and Florida prepares for the arrival of Hurricane Irma, Congress approved $15 billion in critical bipartisan funding today to help support our first responders and those communities hardest hit by these storms. This week, I met with retiring CFTC Commissioner Bowen to discuss the work we can do to protect our markets and I joined KFGO Radio to highlight the need for action on permanent flood protection for Fargo. With flooding affecting large areas in the south, there is only more reason for us to recognize the importance of flood protection. Water quality also remains a prominent issue in Minnesota, and this week several meetings were held to call attention to water management issues. Finally, I hope everyone enjoyed the Labor Day holiday, and I hope we continue to honor the contributions of our American workers every day. Sincerely, Congressman Collin C. PetersonMinnesota 7th District CFTC Comm

Mahnomen Dear Friends, This week I spent time visiting communities throughout the Seventh district where innovation and development continue to bring new jobs and opportunities to rural Minnesota. When businesses like Digi-Key, Trū Shrimp, and RS Fiber Cooperative invest in our local communities our entire rural economy benefits. I also sat down with Chris Berg to discuss some of the current issues before Congress on his show Point of View, which you can watch below. Sincerely, Congressman Collin C. PetersonMinnesota 7th District Digi-Key’s Groundbreaking Celebration Photo courtesy of the Thief River Falls Times I had the privilege to participate in the groundbreaking ceremony of Digi-Key’s expansion earlier in the week. The Thief River Falls-based tech company employs more than 3,000 people and, with this expansion, an additional 1,000 jobs will be created. Strengthening our rural economy and workforce continues to be one of my top priorities. This project demonstrates what can b

“Traditional Broomsman”Chautauqua Festival in Huot Dear Friends, This week, my thoughts go out to residents, first responders, and volunteers in Houston as they seek safety and shelter from the historic rains caused by Hurricane Harvey. For those who want to support the response efforts, there is information below provided by the Federal Emergency Management Agency with recommendations on how you can help. Last week, I visited the Minnesota Alliance of Rural Addiction Treatment Programs conference to learn more about opioid addiction from practitioners across the state. This week, I met locally with farmers near Barrett, and traveled to Decatur, Illinois to host a farm bill listening session with the Secretary of Agriculture, Chairman of the Agriculture Committee, and other members of Congress.

Red Lake County Dear Friends, With a packed legislative agenda expected this fall, I joined several of my colleagues from across the aisle for a meeting with President Trump at the White House. Bipartisan meetings like this, as well as dozens more, are happening in the Capitol to find areas to work together on farm policy, disaster assistance, and stabilizing our healthcare system. This week, I welcomed a dozen Minnesotan groups to my office to talk about issues from the farm bill to healthcare, including the Minnesota Farmers Union, Minnesota Farm Bureau, the Minnesota Hospital Association, Minnesota Veterans of Foreign Wars, and many others. Finally, as we remember the 16th anniversary of 9/11 this week, I encourage everyone to remember the sacrifice and bravery of so many on that fateful day. I remain committed to ensuring the health and well-being of all in our nation who serve and protect, and was glad to support the Firefighters Cancer Registry Act which passed this week. Sincere
