Farm Workforce Modernization Act Receives Bipartisan Support

07/17/2022

Earlier this year, the House passed the Farm Workforce Modernization Act.  Passage in the Senate is supported by both sides of the aisle with intense lobbying by livestock and agricultural associations and business groups.  Senator Michael Bennett (D-CO) and Mike Crapo (R-ID) are co-sponsors of the Senate version of the bill.

 

Studies have shown that increasing the number of H-2A Visas will be counter-inflationary and will not lead to unemployment or reduced earnings by U.S. citizens.

 

This bipartisan bill should be passed with all expediency to benefit farmers and consumers.
