Peterson doesn't favor cap-and-trade energy policy, explains committee process
U.S. Rep. Collin Peterson voted for an energy bill last year that included concessions to agriculture on cap-and-trade cabon policy. He might not vote for the conference report this year.
"I voted to move the bill forward," Peterson, DFL-7th District, said Thursday in an interview. "If it would have been the final bill, I have problems with what they did on the cap and trade part of things, I would have voted no."
