PIA praised passage on June 21 by the U.S. House of Representatives of H.R. 2, the Agriculture and Nutrition Act of 2018, more popularly known as the 2018 Farm Bill. The final vote was 213-211.

“PIA applauds House Agriculture Chairman Mike Conaway (R-Texas) for championing the bill which recognizes the importance of a strong safety net through crop insurance, and respects the vital role played by independent insurance agents in the delivery of the federal crop insurance program,” said PIA National Vice President of Government Relations Jon Gentile. “When America’s farmers need crop insurance, they turn to their PIA agents.”

PIA National will continue to work with the Senate as the upper chamber’s version of the 2018 Farm Bill moves toward a debate and vote on the Senate floor.
