HELP US DEFEND HARVEST PRICE OPTION IN CROP
Although the House Agriculture Committee prides itself on bipartisanship, lines were clearly drawn in the farm bill vote out of committee in April. The vote was 26-20, along party lines.
With a more partisan farm bill debate, farmers must be prepared to defend the programs and program nuances that are most important to them.
One amendment that we expect in the farm bill debate is to eliminate the Harvest Price Option (HPO) in Crop Insurance. We know from our members that this is an important aspect of your crop insurance functionality and we want to be prepared to defend it.
