WILLMAR, Minn. – U.S. Rep. Collin Peterson believes a new federal farm bill could be approved before Congress’ August recess.

In a visit to Willmar on Friday, the congressman said there is more farm bill-related activity in the House this year than a year ago, when the bill was never brought to a vote in the full House.


House leaders have told him they want to get a bill done this year, said Peterson, who serves as the House Agriculture Committee’s ranking Democratic member.
