Brandon Willis, Administrator of Risk Management Agency (RMA) for the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), provided an RMA update for those at the recent annual meeting for the Crop Insurance and Reinsurance Bureau (CIRB). Brandon shared insights for activity in the coming year and discussed the long-term outlook for crop insurance.
Prior to joining USDA in 2009, he served as agricultural staff for Senate Agriculture Committee member and Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus. So, he is no stranger to the needs of farmers across the country and strives to keep those communication lines open to aid in crop insurance education.
“We have a lot to do this year. While the program might be up and running, a lot of farmers still need to learn more about them.”
“I believe the actions we take over the next few years will make sure we have a safe net for everybody and insure our program is one that is free from abuse and will have the same impact for the programs future as past ones did that got us here today.”
