The Austin Daily Herald covered Sen. Franken's visit to southeast Minnesota to discuss agriculture issues, including his push to pass a five-year Farm Bill.

Farmers, residents and local leaders met with Sen. Al Franken Saturday to discuss various agriculture issues during the legislator's visit to Albert Lea.

Franken discussed the farm bill issue in both Albert Lea and St. Charles Saturday, though the talks also touched on other agriculture issues like conservation and biodiesel. Franken said he enjoyed that other topics came up and said he enjoys speaking with constituents in informal settings.

"The reason I'm here today is to hear from you," Franken said. "There's very little that doesn't impact people in rural areas."
