A new effort to increase the state’s agriculture budget
by $26.9 million appears to have the support of Rep. Rod Hamilton of Mt. Lake. According to Hamilton, studies suggest that in 35 years the demand for food globally could double from today’s level. To address this problem, a coalition of ag supporters formed a plan designed to maintain Minnesota’s standing as a leader in food production
and prepare for the future.
“It is extremely rare to get Minnesota’s ag interest groups to all agree on legislation that would impact the future of our state’s food supply,” Hamilton said. “But in this case,
they understand that we have the opportunity to do something beneficial for agriculture this session and I commend them for their hard work and insight.”
