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 The legislation will replace current, outdated dairy programs with new risk management tools addressing the realities of today’s dairy industry, such as rising input costs and a growing export market.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

Snow in Detroit Lakes this morning Dear Friends, The ongoing opioid crisis in our country has devastated families and rural communities and it is past time for strong action to be taken to keep our communities safe and healthy. This week, I worked to call attention to the continuing need for solutions to combat drug abuse. I joined Senator Klobuchar at a roundtable discussion in Thief River Falls last Friday to hear from local health professionals on treatment programs, and talked to Joel Heitkamp on KFGO News and Views Thursday morning to talk about effective policies that combat addiction. This issue will continue to grow unless we work together to find long-term solutions. You can read more about the issue in my letter-to-the-editor that was sent to local newspapers around the Seventh. Sincerely, Congressman Collin C. PetersonMinnesota 7th District Opioid Roundtable Senator Klobuchar and I heard from multiple state and local agencies as well as healthcare and treatment providers th
Veterans Day is a day of reflection
Today we honor all the men and women who’ve served our country. A veteran’s commitment to protecting America should never go unnoticed or unappreciated. President Dwight D. Eisenhower rightfully saw the need for a time dedicated to our veterans and proclaimed November 11th as Veterans Day. We reflect on the sacrifices made by veterans and their families which have helped to ensure that freedom and democracy prevail in this country. Since its founding, the United States has fought in 11 major wars and other smaller conflicts. More than 50 million Americans have served in our military during those times. Minnesota's Seventh Congressional District is currently home to over 50,000 veterans. In Congress, we are working to improve the benefits and resources our service members have earned both overseas and here at home. I have recently cosponsored many bills benefitting veterans, one for example would eliminate taxes imposed on a surviving spouse and another would increase the number of

Brown LakeOttertail County Dear Friends, The House Republicans released their tax proposal this week and I have been hearing from constituents all over the Seventh about how it would affect them. Our tax code is in need of reform and changes should help strengthen our middle class and our rural economy. I will continue to study the impact the various provisions will have on constituents in the district, but I am concerned that the rushed partisan process to dramatically change our tax code is repeating the mistakes of the failed process to address the problems in our healthcare system. This week the House also passed H.R. 2936, the Resilient Federal Forests Act of 2017, which will give the Forest Service the tools it needs to successfully manage our federal forests. As an original co-sponsor of this bill, I am glad to see it move forward in helping keep our federal forests managed properly. Sincerely, Congressman Collin C. PetersonMinnesota 7th District National Council of Farmer Coope

Early winter sightingsThief River Falls Dear Friends, This week we recognize Veterans Day as a day to honor all the men and women who have served our country. A veteran’s commitment to protecting America should never go unnoticed or unappreciated. We reflect on the sacrifices made by veterans and their families which have helped to ensure that freedom and democracy prevail in this country. Their strength and courage inspires us to work hard at improving our lives at home. I am proud to join with my fellow Minnesotans to pay tribute to those who have bravely defended this country. Sincerely, Congressman Collin C. PetersonMinnesota 7th District USDA Deputy Secretary Censky On Wednesday, I met with U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Deputy Secretary Stephen Censky to discuss the important issues that face the Department of Agriculture as Congress works to reauthorize the farm bill. I congratulate him on his new position and look forward to our continued work together to benefit and
