BEMIDJI, Minn. -- The U.S. Department of Agriculture could declare Minnesota a split state for bovine tuberculosis control within weeks, U.S. Rep. Collin Peterson said Saturday.

"We expect by the end of this month or the first of September that the split-state status will be approved by USDA," Peterson, DFL-7th District, said in an interview Saturday. "As far as I know, everything is on track to do that."
