The House passed the latest COVID-relief bill with a 220-to-211 vote. Minnesota Representative Michelle Fischbach was one of the lawmakers in the opposition. “We should have done more for ethanol and we should have done more targeted relief. When we spend $1.9 trillion on something, it should be targeted and actual COVID relief.” During the Fosston Farm Forum, Fischbach said it doesn’t make sense to pass a $2 trillion COVID bill when there’s still unspent money from the previous assistance package. Fischbach is also upset with USDA for suspending the Coronavirus Food Assistance Program payments.
