Minnesota Senate Agriculture, Broadband, and Rural Development Committee Chairman Aric Putnam is in his second term in the Legislature and his first term on the ag committee. During the first hearing of the session, Putnam said he understood the committee is historically very bipartisan. “While I hold this gavel, that’s not good enough; we need to be better than bipartisan, we need to be non-partisan,” said Putnam. “I am disinclined to hear any bill from anyone that has five signers of the same party. We need to work better and do better.”
