House Ag Chairman Mike Conaway Praises Highway Bill Provision Saving Federal Crop Insurance

Tue, 01 Dec 2015 16:12:12 CST

House Ag Chairman Mike Conaway Praises Highway Bill Provision Saving Federal Crop Insurance Rep. K. Michael Conaway (R-TX) issued the following statement concerning the inclusion of a critical provision in the Highway Bill conference report that will save Federal Crop Insurance from devastating changes that had been slipped into the Bipartisan Budget Act signed into law last month.


"I strongly commend House Speaker Paul Ryan and Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy for their leadership in ensuring that crop insurance continues to be available, affordable, and accessible to America's farmers and ranchers.


"By including language in the Highway Bill conference report to fully repeal a provision that was designed to kill crop insurance, the Speaker and the Majority Leader are working to keep their promise to me and to all of rural America. I also commend Transportation Committee Chairman Bill Shuster for agreeing to include this time sensitive repeal in the Highway Bill conference report. I hope my colleagues in Congress will lend their strong support in ensuring that the Highway Bill conference report is enacted into law and that crop insurance is saved."
