Conservative groups' lobbying unable to dim congressional support for farm programs

Conservative organizations saw a "golden opportunity" to influence the farm bill this year, but their grasp on lawmakers has so far been tenuous, at best. Although conservatives were able to influence the farm bill process in perhaps no way they've been able to do before, persuading House GOP leaders to split off food stamps from the bill for the first time since the 1970s, they've come out mostly empty-handed when it comes to influencing farm policy.
