New York Gov.
Andrew Cuomo signed into law on Thursday a policy that will allow progressive renters to cover a portion of their insurance premiums under a new state farm insurance program that he said will help millions of Americans.
The state’s Farm Bill will also allow rural landlords to charge a percentage of the renters rent for security services.
Cuomo, a Democrat, has called for the program to be expanded to include more affordable housing and low-income renters, saying it is critical to help struggling renters.
Cuomo signed the bill into law Thursday.
He said the state Farm Bill would allow farmers to cover their fair share of their tenant’s premiums, and said the program would help millions more people.
Cuomo said the Farm Bill is about “getting more families to the table.”
The Farm Bill was signed into legislation by Gov.
Cuomo at the New York State Capitol in Albany, N.Y., Thursday, March 3, 2021.
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, who is also the mayor of New York, signed a similar bill into federal law.
Cuomo’s policy covers renters renting at least 30 days in New York or more than 90 days nationwide, including people with pre-existing conditions.
The Farm bill allows farmers to make their own choices, but Cuomo said that the state would provide financial assistance to help homeowners and renters with insurance premiums.
Cuomo called the Farm bill a “game changer” that would help farmers “accelerate their return to a level playing field.”
Cuomo said his bill would also create a new incentive for farmers to pay for tenant-owned rental properties.
New Jersey Gov.
Chris Christie, a Republican, said Thursday that he would sign a bill that would allow rural homeowners to cover tenants in their homes if their rental property is less than 300 square feet.
Christie, who said he will support a Democratic proposal to extend the farm program, said he has concerns about the program and that he was willing to discuss with the president the impact it will have on small business owners.
Christie said he was committed to working with President Trump to develop the Farm program.
The Republican governor has been an advocate for the farm and farm-related industry, and has proposed a comprehensive farm bill to help farmers.
Christie has also signed bills in several other states that expand the program, including in South Dakota, Oregon and California.
In a statement Thursday, the White House said the farm bill would be the first Farm Bill to include a financial incentive for homeowners to buy rental properties, but it did not elaborate.
The president’s farm policy, which is a combination of the Farm Aid bill and Farm Bill funding, would expand the Farm Program to cover the costs of tenant-managed rentals, including insurance, as well as rent and other costs.
The White House did not provide a specific number of Americans who would be eligible for Farm Bill financial assistance.
“It is important to note that this Farm Bill does not provide any new or additional benefits to anyone, regardless of income, or any new benefits to the owner of a rental property, but rather provides a financial assistance program that helps the owner pay the costs associated with their rental properties,” the White, House statement said.
“The Farm Bill provides a comprehensive program to help small business and rural communities in the United States that provide a critical source of economic growth.”
Christie said his Farm Bill could benefit homeowners who rent from small farmers.
“This bill allows me to support my family, but I want to see the Farm and Farm Industry continue to grow in New Jersey,” Christie said.
He has also proposed a farm bill that includes financial incentives for homeowners, including mortgage payments.
Christie’s Farm bill would allow homeowners to rent up to 30 days of their rental time to other renters, including other owners.
If a homeowner rents out 30 days, they would pay $20 a month toward their mortgage, and they could then get a credit card that could be used to pay rent up until the end of the month, according to the statement.
A mortgage can be paid off in one to four years, but a mortgage can take up to five years.
The bill would not include any new subsidies for homeowners with small businesses, which would need to make payments on a monthly basis, according.
The governor said the legislation would also provide financial help for rental property owners, who have been under pressure to pay tenants more.
“I want to make sure that our landlords and their tenants are paying their fair shares and they are being given the best opportunity to succeed,” Christie added.
“And we want them to be able to take advantage of all the incentives that are there for small business.”
