Sen. Franken aide: ‘Now’s the time’ for new farm bill

Published 03/01/2012, Agweek

Delays would hurt chances of approval, Franken aide says
“Now’s the time to get it done,” said Al Juhnke, agriculture/energy field representative for Franken. Approving new legislation would become more difficult as Election Day this fall comes nearer, he said. Juhnke, a former Minnesota state legislator, talked about the 2012 farm bill Thursday afternoon at East Grand Forks City Hall. Representatives of Rep. Collin Peterson, D-Minn., and Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., were present, too.
