Abstract:

The law authorizing the Federal Crop Insurance Corporation was amended in 1980 to encourage greater involvement by the private insurance industry in the Federal program to protect agricultural producers from losses caused by unavoidable natural hazards. Some insurance companies are hesitant to participate in the program because they believe they would be considered Federal contractors and thus subject to Federal equal employment opportunity regulations. A decision by the Department of Labor is pending.
