Senator Perdue Statement on Crop Insurance

WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA) today released the following statement regarding crop insurance:

"After reducing crop insurance by $23 million in the Farm Bill last year, additional cuts should not have been on the table. As Washington often does it makes promises it can’t keep. In this case cuts to crop insurance were used to simulate fake savings in the Grand Bargain and then reversed by the highway bill. My commitment to agriculture priorities like crop insurance is strong, but so is my plea for fiscal sanity in Washington."
