This article focuses on a legislative effort regarding peanut industry of the U.S. People who earn their keep as watchdogs over the activities of the U.S. Congress that affect the peanut industry have enjoyed a relatively quite year. Mike McLeod, who serves as counsel to the American Peanut Producers Manufacturers Inc., addressing the opening session of the 6th Annual Southern Peanut Growers Conference recently in Panama City, Florida, said the industry "dodged a bullet," when a congressman proposed an amendment that would have stopped the government from paying peanut storage and handling fees. According to McLeod, the reasoning behind the proposal was that payments to sellers and manufacturers did not benefit producers.
