ST. PAUL — State Rep. Paul Anderson, R-Starbuck, was appointment to continue serving as the lead Republican on the House Agriculture Finance and Policy Committee for the 2023-24 biennium.

Anderson, entering his eighth term, has been the top Republican on agriculture the last two years and has served related committees throughout his House tenure.

“I want to work with the DFL majority and try to provide balance to make sure Minnesota is not an island of burdensome, unnecessary regulations compared with other states,” Anderson said in a news release. “Minnesota is a powerhouse in ag production, and we need to do what we can to let farmers farm and continue doing the good job they do instead of the state making their work even harder than it already is."

Anderson said another top priority of his relates to the bird flu and providing funding necessary to combat the challenges it brings.

"We need to look at research to determine why this is becoming a year-round problem in our wild bird flock,” Anderson said.
