U.S. House Agriculture Committee Ranking Member Collin Peterson of Minnesota’s 7th District is no fan of President Trump’s 2019 budget request.

    “Contrary to the Administration’s infrastructure proposal, this budget will harm rural America and agriculture,” Peterson said in a statement. “The individual provisions represent a blueprint for lawmakers seeking to weaken or completely do away with the farm and food safety net, making the already difficult task of passing a farm bill that much harder.”
