Farm Bill is Lame Duck Priority
November 9, 2018
U.S. Rep. Collin Peterson (Minn.) – who likely will retake the chairmanship of the House Agriculture Committee – said Wednesday his top priority right now is to get a farm bill done in the upcoming lame-duck session of Congress that will start next week.
Peterson – who won his 14th term Tuesday night – said he got a phone call from USDA Secretary Sonny Perdue late in the evening congratulating Peterson and encouraged him to help get a farm bill done quickly.
“That’s going to be the No. 1 goal,” Peterson told reporters on a conference call. “I think we’re relatively close, and I think we can work this out and get this done before this Congress adjourns.”
