Congressman Chris Collins released this statement Thursday:

"Today's unfortunate defeat of the House farm bill speaks to the dysfunction in Washington that continues to stand in the way of solving real problems for real Americans.

"Agriculture is a critical industry in New York's 27th Congressional District, impacting our local residents far beyond those directly doing the hard work of farming. Our farmers and growers deserve a Congress that can come together and pass a long-term farm bill. It is essential to help our agricultural industry plan and prepare.

"As a member of the House Agriculture Committee, I remain committed to the work ahead to see a farm bill become law."
