Minority Leader Visits Hartwick

Insure Crops Brewers Need,

Senator Schumer Says Here

U.S. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer is introduced at Hartwick College today by Dr. Michael Tannenbaum, provost & vice president of academic affairs.

ONEONTA – At Hartwick College’s Center for Craft Food & Beverage, U.S. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-NY, today announced he is asking the USDA to approve a specialized crop insurance to protect farmers growing crops for the state’s expanding farm breweries.

“It is imperative that the USDA takes the necessary steps towards offering the malt barley endorsement (MBE) throughout these (44 Upstate) counties to provide further protection for our growers while continuing to promote the businesses that rely on this important crop,” Schumer said in a letter to U.S. Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue that was released here today.
