Lobbyist: farm bill failure 'undercuts our effectiveness'

Randy Russell, a prominent agricultural lobbyist, said he could not remember when a farm bill had failed on final passage in either the House or the Senate and that he did not believe it had happened in modern times. The failure to pass the bill, Russell said on June 21, “is a negative reflection on the agriculture community broadly defined. Yesterday was not a good day for agriculture. It undercuts our effectiveness.”
