Medicare Open Enrollment Ends 12/7

The Open Enrollment Period (10/15 - 12/7) offers Medicare recipients the opportunity to review and change their health and prescription drug coverage for the coming year. Coverage and prices vary from county to county and year to year, so this is a good opportunity to read up on all the different options available. This is the only time you can change your plan, so this is a good time to find something that works for you. If you are satisfied with the coverage you have, you don’t need to do anything at all. To do a personalized search and see all the health care plans available, use the Medicare Plan Finder at

Farm Bill Now Rally

I joined hundreds of farmers and ranchers and fellow members of Congress at a Capitol rally on Sept 12 to urge Republican House Leaders to bring the five-year farm bill to a vote. I simply can’t understand why these guys are choosing to play politics with the farm bill. The rally was a good start but we need the grassroots to step up their efforts and keep making phone calls and sending e-mails to their representatives and Congressional leaders. We need to make sure they’re feeling the pressure to get this bill done.

Peterson Honored as Guardian of Small Business

Congressman Collin C. Peterson was recently awarded the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) Guardian of Small Business Award for the 112th Congress. This award is given to members of Congress based on their small business voting record. “Having started a small business myself I understand the difficulties small business owners face. In this economy especially I believe it is important to stand up for small businesses and their employees,” Peterson said.

Visit to Sunshine Dairy

Collin visited Sunshine Dairy in ARLINGTON on August 14. This family dairy partnership is operated by Ron and Pam Krueger and Scott and Stephanie Krueger. The Krueger family has received numerous awards from their milk-marketing cooperative, and in the past three years, they were twice named the top milk-producing herd in the county.
