The Minnesota Agri-Growth Council hosted a webinar with four state lawmakers to reflect on the 2020 Minnesota legislative session. “I think we came up with really good bills, both finance and policy; also, the other farmer-lender mediation bills,” said House Agriculture Food and Finance Policy Committee Chair Jeanne Poppe. Senate Agriculture Committee Chair Bill Weber said advanced planning will be needed to prepare for future food chain disruptions. “I never thought quite frankly that we would be at the level of production that we are at these plants right now. I commend them for continuing to ensure the safety of their workers and continuing their production.” Lawmakers are expected to address more COVID-19 relief in a special session.
