"The legislature made a sin- cere effort in 1999 to lessen the bur- den for Minnesota farmers. However, we hope that our panel will address more creative, structural solutions that address some of the ways the state interacts with farmers and rural communities", he added. The rural policy panel comprised of agricultural economists, farm oper- ators, agricultural lenders, representa- tives from value-added industries, government, agri business and policy analysts will work to complete a pre- liminary report by the end of the year, with a final report due in March 2000. Ed Lotterman, an agricultural econo- mist, formerly with the Federal Reserve Bank in Minneapolis will lead and administer the panel. In their report the panel will address the current conditions facing Minnesota agricultural producers; the longer-term outlook for agriculture; and what the appropriate role of state government might be. "We do not see our charge as trying to tell legislators or the administration what they should do, however, during the last legislative session it seemed clear that many legislators desired clearer prior- ities from the farm sector" Lotterman noted. "Given the makeup and various perspectives of the panel members, it is likely that they will not agree on everything regarding what those alter- natives are and what the role of state government should be. However, in those areas that they do reach consen- sus, we believe that legislators and other public policymakers will find our input valuable" Lotterman added.
