The 35-day partial government shutdown is over, but Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar is seeing a possible hangover effect on agriculture. “The things I’m most worried about for Minnesota include the EPA’s rulemaking for year-round sales E15 may be delayed and we’re really pushing them to get that done by June 1.” The government is funded through mid-February, giving the administration and Congress time to negotiate border security issues. Klobuchar wants to avoid another shutdown. “The hope is these people have learned their lesson and this won’t happen again. Otherwise, we’ll have recurring shutdowns and that doesn’t make sense.”
