Farm bill funds may fight floods

Email

Minnesota Rep. Collin Peterson wants a provision in the next federal farm bill that would set aside $50 million a year to fund retention projects in the Red River Valley.

"If we can get this done - and I don't see any reason why we can't - it would give us the money we need to get the retention in place by the time the diversion gets built," said Peterson, a Democrat who represents Minnesota's 7th District, which includes Clay County.
