In this edition of NPC’s Eye on Potatoes podcast, leading agriculture political advisor Randy Russell of The Russell Group joins National Potato Council CEO Kam Quarles and host Lane Nordlund for an in-depth discussion of the 2020 election results and how the potato industry will work with the new Congress and Biden Administration to advance its policy priorities.
The group forecasts the potential to move forward the industry’s trade agenda, legislation that would help secure a stable workforce, and ensuring potatoes remain in federal nutrition programs.
Additionally, with the government funding deadline around the corner and Capitol Hill debating the next round of COVID relief, they discuss what the Lame Duck session might hold for growers and the rest of America.
