There hasn’t been much movement on a new farm bill and National Farmers Union President Rob Larew says it’s not what’s in the bill that’s holding things up.

“The current norm of divisiveness in Congress has seeped into our food and agriculture policy making process…the farm bill is being held hostage by a small faction of lawmakers obstructing bipartisan efforts and showing an unwillingness to compromise or seek middle ground.”

Rob Larew tells Brownfield there are many unanswered questions about the farm bill.
