WASHINGTON, Sep 8, 2008 - RMA announced today that it has approved the Standard Reinsurance Agreement for Hudson Insurance Company and The Insurance Company of the State of Pennsylvania, and has approved the Livestock Price Reinsurance Agreement for Casualty Underwriters Insurance Company.

"The assets of Hudson Insurance Company, The Insurance Company of the State of Pennsylvania, and Casualty Underwriters Insurance Company represent a welcome addition to the Federal Crop Insurance Program," said RMA Administrator Eldon Gould. "These three companies join existing insurance providers and RMA in our effort to increase coverage and capacity in the Federal Crop Insurance Program, allowing us to provide excellent risk management tools to the American farmer."

Providing affordable and effective risk management tools to farmers is a unique public-private partnership. RMA is committed to private sector delivery of the Federal Crop Insurance Program and is pleased with the added participation of Hudson Insurance Company The Insurance Company of the State of Pennsylvania, and Casualty Underwriters Insurance Company.
