National Council of Farmer Cooperatives Calls H-2A Visa Program Proposed Rule Making a Significant Improvement

Mon, 15 Jul 2019 15:26:05 CDT

National Council of Farmer Cooperatives Calls H-2A Visa Program Proposed Rule Making a Significant Improvement The following statement was released Monday by National Council of Farmer Cooperatives CEO Chuck Conner regarding the H-2A Visa Program Proposed Rule Making:


In issuing a proposed rule today on changes to the H-2A visa program for agricultural guest workers, the Department of Labor (DoL) is taking a significant step to improve a system in need of a dramatic overhaul. While we are still reviewing the details of the rule, we understand that it contains provisions that will help streamline the program and simplify the process for the farmers and growers who use it. We would like to recognize the efforts of Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue, who has worked closely with the DoL through the interagency process to secure these important changes.


“While this new rule is welcome, a permanent solution to the labor crisis faced by agriculture is congressional action to address both current and future needs of the sector. NCFC will continue to work with policy makers and other stakeholders to find a path forward for such a solution.”
