Peterson Statement on Trump Budget Request

February 14, 2018

WASHINGTON – House Agriculture Committee Ranking Member Collin Peterson today made the following statement on President Trump’s 2019 Budget Request.

“Contrary to the Administration’s infrastructure proposal, this budget will harm rural America and agriculture. While it’s safe to assume this proposal won’t pass Congress, 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.

“All of agriculture should stand together in opposition to this budget.”
