Maloney Urges Farmers to Contact Office If Needed in Aftermath of Tropical Storm Henri
 
Newburgh, NY — Today, Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney (NY-18) released the following statement following the destruction of Tropical Storm Henri:
 
“Since coming to Congress, I have made it a priority to protect Hudson Valley farmers. Whether it’s our economic recovery from coronavirus or inclement weather, I have worked with local folks to come up with solutions that improve the daily lives of those in the agricultural sector,” said Rep. Maloney. “If you are a farmer who is dealing with crop damage in the aftermath of Henri, I want to be clear — my office is here to help.”
 
Constituents can contact the office by calling 845-561-1259.
 
Since 2013, Rep. Maloney has passed five landmark, bipartisan bills to help local farmers make ends meet. The first bill he wrote in Congress, the Creating Reliability for Our Producers (CROP) Act, was signed into law as part of the 2014 Farm Bill. This reformed the specialty crop insurance program by investing in the development of new and improved plans that better protect small, diversified family farms. He has also passed legislation to cover more specialty and value-added crops, and address local flooding issues with producers whose operations contain muck soils.
 
This June, he hosted a Farm Tour in which he visited local farms and discussed economic recovery in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
