Gillibrand Tries To Get Back Money For 'Ripped Off' Farmers

Posted: Updated:

Senator Kirsten Gillibrand says farmers have been "ripped off" by an insurance program. Now she has secured a provision in the Senate's 2018 Farm Bill to get them their money back.

The Margin Protection Program, or MPP, was supposed to help farmers when milk prices were low, but most farmers never saw a dime.

If the Farm Bill passes, this provision would see farmers who paid into the MPP get a full refund.

The Senate is expected to vote on its version of the Farm Bill in the next couple weeks.
