Capitol Hill View by Rep. Peterson

Chuck Zimmerman

Rep. Collin PetersonThis morning at the National Ethanol Conference we got the view from Capitol Hill as two of our Congressmen provided their thoughts on the legislative agenda for the 110th Congress.

First up was Representative Collin Peterson (D-MN). He serves as Chairman of the House Agriculture Committee.

Peterson started out mentioning the farm bill and the challenges presented by the successes in agriculture, especially in crops like corn. He also talks about how the livestock industry is making its concerns known on the Hill regarding feed costs.
