Stabenow calls for crop insurance updates

The Chair of the Senate Ag Committee is outlining her priorities for crop insurance in the next farm bill with fellow lawmakers.

In a letter this week, Michigan Senator Debbie Stabenow says she’s open to proposals for every commodity to receive increases for insurance with effective reference prices like what the Price Loss Coverage program provides.

Stabenow says there’s a need for more options with new policies that protect farmers from high costs and low margins while providing access to affordable credit.
