Minnesota Farm Leader Says Congress Needs To Get Working

Minnesota Farm Leader Says Congress Needs To Get Working

It’s time for Congress to knuckle down and get to work on passing needed legislation.  Minnesota Farm Bureau President Kevin Paap says after a 16 day shut down the government is operating again but needs to get serious about important issues like the farm bill, immigration, water resources development as well as addressing the fiscal crisis.

Paap adds that Senators and Representatives need to solve the fiscal crisis that hasn’t gone away and not keep kicking the can down the road.

He says constant bickering doesn’t solve anything and it’s time for Congress to take the high road and serve the people they were elected to represent.
