Wed, 25 Apr 2018 14:16:12 CDT

ARC Improvement and Innovation Act Introduced by Sens Thune, Brown Wins NCGA's Endorsement The National Corn Growers Association today endorsed legislation introduced by Sens. John Thune, R-S.D., and Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, to improve the Agriculture Risk Coverage Program.



"The Agriculture Risk Coverage (ARC) Improvement and Innovation Act will make needed improvements to the farm safety net, ensuring ARC can continue to be a reliable risk management program for farmers during times of depressed prices. Based on the recommendation of the National Corn Growers Association (NCGA) grower-led Risk Management Team, NCGA is pleased to endorse this legislation and looks forward to working with the Senate Agriculture Committee on this measure," said NCGA President Kevin Skunes.



The bill incorporates a number of the NCGA Risk Management Action Team's (RMAT) recommendations to enhance the ARC program's effectiveness in a lower price environment. More information on the legislation is available here.
