The new Congress is getting settled in Washington with a long to-do list. In today’s Congressional Corner, New York Representative Sean Patrick Maloney tells WAMC’s Alan Chartock that he’s anxious to stay busy on behalf of his district.
New York Congressman Sean Patrick Maloney, a Democrat, has introduced his first bill since taking office in January. It has to do with better protecting fruit and vegetable farmers when it comes to crop insurance.
Maloney says The CROP Act, or The Creating Reliability for Our Producers Act, aims to reform crop insurance to help so-called specialty crop farmers, namely, fruit and vegetable growers.
