Bustos Farm Bill Priority: Don’t Touch Crop Insurance
(Rock Island, IL) — The Quad Cities’ Democratic congresswoman says protecting crop insurance is her top priority. Congresswoman Cheri Bustos is on the committee in Washington D.C. that is writing the new farm bill. Yesterday, Bustos told the Dispatch-Argus newspaper that farmers across western Illinois have asked her to leave the program that provides a federal backstop to their crops as is. Bustos says there are just too many questions about crop prices to change the program now.
