Collin Peterson is working with Combest, Sell and Associates, an ag lobbying firm, in an advisory and consulting role. “Since December, I’ve been getting a lot of advice and calls from people saying I had to stay engaged. They wanted me to be at the table advocating for agriculture. The opportunity with Combest, Sell and Associates appealed to me immediately. It’s a good fit.” Peterson will not lobby in the next year, but will engage with corn, sugar, crop insurance, rice and cotton industries. Peterson will operate his consulting venture, The Peterson Group, from Minnesota. “Staying in Minnesota is one thing that attracted me to the role.” Peterson says bipartisanship is needed in Washington D.C. The implementation of the latest COVID relief bill will indicate how lawmakers and the Biden administration may handle future legislation impacting agriculture. Listen to the story.
