Peterson working to make sure HEROES Act ag provisions make it in final bill

House Ag Committee chairman Collin Peterson says he and his colleagues are working to make sure ag provisions included in the HEROES Act are put in the next round of coronavirus relief.

Currently being negotiated now between the White House, the House, and the Senate. In the (HEROES Act), probably the most important thing we had is the help for hog (and turkey) producers for depopulation. Also some money for (processing) plants to keep them running.

Participating in a congressional candidate forum hosted virtually by Minnesota Farmfest, the Minnesota Democrat said theres also direct assistance for ethanol producers in the HEROES Act.

So its very much supported by all of agriculture. Were hoping that in the final bill thats negotiated by the leadership thats working on it right now, that will become part of the final bill.

Congress is scheduled to break for August recess at the end of the week, but lawmakers on both sides have indicated they will stay in session until the bill is completed.
