From Rep. Tom Petri:

“As the largest subsidy to farmers, crop insurance is in dire need of reforms to make the program more targeted and accountable to taxpayers,” said Andrew Moylan, Senior Fellow with the R Street Institute. “The AFFIRM Act does exactly that by establishing a modest payment limit and means test, by reducing subsidies for industry, and by providing full transparency. Republicans and Democrats have strong disagreements, but they should unite around this common sense legislation. We applaud Representatives Kind and Petri for leading on this important issue in a bipartisan fashion.”
