Protecting crop insurance and addressing Proposition 12 are American Farm Bureau priorities as farm bill negotiations continue. 

AFBF director of government affairs R.J. Layher says crop insurance is in the crosshairs every farm bill.

“Crop insurance is also the cornerstone of the farm safety net, and we are 100 percent opposed to any cuts that could happen to crop insurance.”

He tells Brownfield Farm Bureau wants crop insurance expanded to specialty crop producers.
