Agriculture Guestwork Act

AWC: Bill is Important First Step in House for Ag Labor

 

The Agriculture Workforce Coalition today said that by introducing his bill on agriculture immigration reform this morning, House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) recognizes that America’s farmers, ranchers and growers need congressional action to ensure a legal and stable workforce.

 

The Agriculture Guestworker “AG” Act, H.R. 1773, “represents an important first step in the House of Representatives, and the AWC looks forward to working with Chairman Goodlatte and other members to ensure that this legislation addresses the labor needs of agriculture both now and in the future,” said the coalition.
