President Obama today stood up for our poultry farmers, and I applaud him for his successful efforts. I await the full details of this agreement, but I do know that Russia's agreement to lift its ban on chicken imports will have a very positive impact on jobs and the economy in Arkansas.

Earlier this week, I expressed my desire to both President Obama and U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk for this matter to be part of today's trade discussions. I appreciate their willingness to listen and reach this significant outcome.
