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 The legislation will replace current, outdated dairy programs with new risk management tools addressing the realities of today’s dairy industry, such as rising input costs and a growing export market.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

A storefront in Granite FallsYellow Medicine County Dear Friends, As Congress readies to leave Washington for the August district work period, I am looking forward to spending some more time in the Seventh. This week I heard from several groups on policies directly impacting our rural communities, including the Crop Insurance Professionals Association, National Cotton Council, Farm Credit Banks, and the Foundation for Food and Agriculture Research. Finally, I look forward to joining many of you Thursday at Farmfest for our listening session on the upcoming farm bill. Sincerely,Congressman Collin C. PetersonMinnesota 7th District Crop Insurance Professionals Association On Wednesday, I met with a group of insurance agents from the Crop Insurance Professionals Association. We discussed the policy challenges facing rural economies including the farm bill, tax reform proposals, and trade agreements. There's much to be learned from crop insurance professionals who help farmers to help mana
Rep. Peterson's Newsletter 8/4/2017
Farmfest Listening SessionMorgan Dear Friends, This week I joined hundreds of Minnesota’s farmers, ranchers, and producers at Farmfest for a House Agriculture Committee listening session on the next farm bill. I was pleased that a number of other members from the Committee and region could join, including Chairman Conaway (TX), Reps. Walz, Nolan, and Emmer from Minnesota, and Reps. Cramer and Noem from North Dakota and South Dakota respectively. Hearing directly from those most impacted by our rural economy only reinforced my conviction that Congress would get more done if they spent more time listening, instead of talking. This listening session was a great example of members taking the time to listen to people about their priories for the farm bill, and things they would like to see improved. I will continue to prioritize your thoughts and concerns as I work to represent Minnesota’s Seventh Congressional District. Sincerely,Congressman Collin C. PetersonMinnesota 7th District Min
Peterson Renews Call for Legislative Fix to Delist Wolves
Today, Congressman Collin C. Peterson (D-Minn.) expressed his disappointment with the decision made by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia to maintain federal Endangered Species Act protections for gray wolves in Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Michigan. “Once again, the courts have proven themselves ignorant to the facts and science when it comes to determining whether gray wolves in the Western Great Lakes states need federal protections. Even the Obama Administration agreed that gray wolf numbers in these states far exceeded any warranty for relisting,” Peterson said. “Congress needs to fix this situation by passing my bill, the Gray Wolf State Management Act of 2017, so that states can effectively balance safety and economic issues and finally bring relief to my farmers.” The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia ruled on August 1, 2017 to uphold the previous court ruling which resulted in federal control of the gray wolf species in Minnesota, Wisc
The Next Farm Bill, Conversations in the Field
The House Agriculture Committee recently announced three farm bill listening sessions to gather stakeholder input, including a session at Farmfest on August 3. These listening sessions are a continuation of the Committee’s review of farm bill programs and I’m looking forward to hearing directly from farmers and others impacted by the farm bill. Real world examples of what is, and maybe isn’t, working will help better inform Committee members when we begin the task of writing a new farm bill. I hope to see many of you at Farmfest!
