Will rural America get some help?

Posted: Updated:

ST. PAUL, MN (FOX 47) -- Minnesota's U.S. Senators say any new economic stimulus plan must include help for rural America.

Republican Norm Coleman and Democrat Amy Klobuchar say rural areas are key in producing renewable fuels, but those areas still need help modernizing roads, bridges, and rail systems so producers can get products to market.

The Senators say the new farm bill does give farmers a safety net, but the task now is to keep tabs on its implementation.
