LINCOLN, NEB., – “We are pleased that a deal was reached to reinstate the $3 billion in cuts to crop insurance that Congressional leaders had sought in a budget agreement with the White House.”

“Reinstating these funds will help ensure that the crop insurance delivery system that farmers rely on each year will continue to operate without interruption.”

“Crop insurance is a key risk management tool for Nebraska farmers and one of, if not, the most important farm program component available to Nebraska farm families today.

“While the agreement has been approved in the House, we urge the Senate to follow suit to protect this vital risk management tool.”
