WILLMAR — U.S. Rep. Collin Peterson believes a new federal Farm Bill could be approved before Congress’ August recess.

In a visit to Willmar on Friday, Peterson said there is more Farm Bill-related activity in the U.S. House of Representatives this year than there was a year ago when the bill was never brought to a vote of the full House.

Leaders in the House have told him that they want to get a bill done this year, Peterson said. He is seeing more lobbying activity.
