The Farm Bureau Insurance companies in Colorado unveil coronavirus customer assistance program

-Farm Bureau Insurance

CENTENNIAL, Colo. – The Farm Bureau Insurance companies, leading providers of property and casualty insurance in Arkansas, Colorado, Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi and South Carolina, are offering a variety of financial assistance measures in response to unexpected hardships for their customers and the communities they serve due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak — including a one-time estimated premium credit of $30 million to policyholders, and a donation of $2.3 million to local food banks across their six state footprint.

“Everything we do is built around helping people. Insurance is a safety net designed to provide people comfort and peace of mind in the face of adversity — and now more than ever, people need to feel that peace,” said Cheryl Radke, Colorado Farm Bureau Insurance, state manager “These are some of the ways the Farm Bureau Insurance companies can give back to the communities we serve, and we are happy to fulfill that obligation of service.”

The Farm Bureau Insurance companies are applying a one-time credit to all personal auto policyholders. This special credit is based on 15 percent of two month’s auto premium for each vehicle covered—an estimated value of about $30 million. No action needs to be taken by the customer to receive this special assistance. The Farm Bureau Insurance companies will simply credit their customers’ next invoice after the program begins. Some billing systems will issue a refund (check or EFT credit) on those policies paid in full.

The Farm Bureau Insurance founding mission is to feed and support the families that put food on our tables. In an effort to hold true to the core values of their organizations by providing relief to their communities in a time of need, the Farm Bureau Insurance companies have jointly decided to donate $2.3 million to local food banks across their six-state footprint.

Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., former Vice President Joe Biden’s choice as a vice presidential candidate, has said she is not a protectionist and believes in trade.But she has also said she would not have voted for the North American Free Trade Agreement, voted against the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement due to environmental concerns, and opposed the Trans Pacific Partnership negotiations from which President Donald Trump withdrew, according to media reports.At a primary debate in September 2019 when she was campaigning for president, Harris said, “I am not a protectionist Democrat. Look, we need to sell our stuff. And that means we need to sell it to people overseas. That means we need trade policies that allow that to happen.”Harris has also been critical of Trump’s trade policies, calling increased tariffs a tax on the American people.Responding to a Council on Foreign Relations questionnaire, Harris said,Trump’s “trade war is crushing American farmers, killing American jobs, and punishing American consumers.”“I would work with our allies in Europe and Asia to confront China on its troubling trade practices, not perpetuate Trump’s failing tariff war that is being paid for by hard‐working Americans,” she said.Harris’s rural platform also said that she would take executive action to re-establish the Grain Inspection, Packers and Stockyards Administration as an independent office at the Agriculture Department and “appoint an Agriculture secretary who will prioritize enforcement of the Packers & Stockyards Act.”Re-establishing GIPSA has been a goal of groups that are critical of U.S. beef imports.Note: Links to Harris’s presidential campaign website have been redirected to the Biden campaign site, but the text of her “Partnership With Rural America” policy page may still be read through a web cache, at https://www.cato.org/blog/kamala-harris-trade-policy.In an analysis of Harris’s trade statements, Simon Lester of the Cato Institute wrote this week, “Where does all of that leave us? She does not seem to be an economic nationalist or isolationist, and she makes clear that she believes the United States should engage with the world economically.”“At the same time, though, the terms of that engagement are a bit uncertain. What exactly would she want to see in a trade agreement before she would sign on to it? She clearly wants more labor and environment provisions in trade agreements, although USMCA had quite a lot and she still voted against it, arguing that climate change should be covered as well.“Maybe the answer is simply that she wants to change the scope of trade agreements, so that they still promote trade liberalization, but at the same time continue their expansion towards general global governance of non‐trade issues. Vice presidents sometimes take on specific issue areas in which to play an active role. If Biden wins and Harris as VP has trade in her portfolio, we will find out more.”
