Farm Bureau Welcomes Guest Worker Proposal

Newsroom / July 16, 2019

The following statement regarding the administration’s efforts to reform agricultural guest labor rules can be attributed to American Farm Bureau Federation President Zippy Duvall:

“AFBF applauds President Trump and his administration for recognizing the need to reform our nation’s agricultural guest worker program. American farmers and ranchers have long faced challenges in meeting their labor needs and asked for modernization of the H-2A program. This is a lengthy rule and we intend to evaluate it closely for its potential to assist growers with their labor needs. We are pleased by this development, however, and look forward to submitting comments to the official docket on this proposal.”
