Minnesota Farmers Union Satisfied with House and Senate Ag Bills

The Minnesota Farmers Union’s director of government relations says he likes a lot about both the House and Senate agricultural bills.

Stu Lourey tells Brownfield that the Senate version includes investments in biofuels, broadband, and meat processing.

“There is even stronger investment in the House bill. They have achieved a $ 11.5 million agricultural target, which will allow small meat processors throughout the state to start investing in biofuel infrastructure. It means that we can make new investments to help. “

He also says there are dollars for hosting farmers’ mental health, co-development, and other farmers’ coalition priorities.

“Not only do we need to return to the very difficult years of COVID-19, but we also take this opportunity to create a more resilient, decentralized and more equitable food and agricultural system for farmers. Need to build, workers, and consumers. “

Lurie was excited about the agricultural bill being submitted to the Commission and acknowledged Governor Waltz for laying the groundwork for his budget earlier this year.
