Senate Debates Cuts to Federal Crop Insurance Program

Posted: Updated:

The senate is debating cuts to the federal crop insurance program as it considers a massive new farm bill.

The proposed legislation would cost almost $100 billion a year over five years.

The Obama administration says it wants to see more cuts to agriculture subsidies and crop insurance in the legislation. Currently the bill would cut about $2.4 billion annually from overall farm spending.

However, it would still expand federally subsidized crop insurance and raise some subsidies.
