MANKATO, Minn. (KEYC) — Last week, Gov. Tim Walz and Lt. Gov. Peggy Flanagan announced the list of agricultural leaders selected for the Governor’s Council on Biofuels.
Among those appointed was Kevin Paap who was recently re-elected as the Minnesota Farm Bureau president.
Paap said he will continue to connect with elected leaders and consumers through his work with the Minnesota Farm Bureau and he’s honored to expand his efforts with the bureau on the Governor’s Council on Biofuels.

This will just help put emphasis on the need to grow our biofuels,” said Kevin Paap, Minnesota Farm Bureau president and member of the Governor’s Council on Biofuels.
