Farm Bill Negotiations Underway 18 Oct 13

Minnesota Congressman Collin Peterson is among the top four negotiators who met Wednesday on the Farm Bill for the first time since the House appointed its negotiators.

Peterson says the meeting went well, but he’s worried about progress in getting a new Farm Bill. He says a lot depends on how Republican leadership and Tea Party forces react because of what happened to them in the budget showdown battle. Peterson says he hopes people don’t take it out on the farm bill.
