Video: Sen. Crapo: Farm Bill Could Change How Farmers Do Business

From KTVB (Boise, Idaho), June 1- “Agriculture is a billion-dollar industry in Idaho, employing tens of thousands of people. But changes could be on the horizon for all those Idaho farms when it comes to how farmers are paid by the federal government.”

“Idaho GOP Senator Mike Crapo was in town this week, so we asked him about the bill and how it might change the way all farmers do business.

“‘The major change for the individual Idaho farmer will be the transition from the traditional crop payment programs to the crop insurance programs,’ said Crapo.”
