House Ag Committee Advances Disaster Aid Bill for 2020 and 2021

Tue, 27 Jul 2021 14:12:22 CDT

House Ag Committee Advances Disaster Aid Bill for 2020 and 2021 Today, the House Agriculture Committee advanced the 2020 WHIP+ Reauthorization Act (H.R. 267), which would provide authorization for the Wildfire and Hurricane Indemnity Program Plus (WHIP+) in 2020 and 2021. This legislation would broaden the assistance available via WHIP+ and authorize $8.5 billion in disaster aid for eligible causes of loss.

“NAWG is pleased to see the House Agriculture Committee working in a bipartisan fashion to deliver much-needed assistance to growers impacted by natural disasters,” said NAWG CEO Chandler Goule. “Currently, wheat growers in the upper plains and across the western United States are experiencing an unprecedented drought. This legislation makes meaningful improvements to WHIP+, particularly in the trigger for drought assistance, excessive heat, and freeze. As Congress continues to work to get needed support to growers, NAWG will continue to work with our states, legislators, and USDA to enhance WHIP+ and challenges associated with the Quality Loss Adjustment program.”
