Washington, D.C. – House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) recently sat down with AgDay TV host Clinton Griffiths to discuss his bill, the Agricultural Guestworker Act. This bill creates a new, workable agricultural guestworker program for America’s farmers and ranchers and is also contained in the Securing America’s Future Act (H.R. 4760).
“Labor for agriculture is the number one problem I hear from many farmers and ranchers. We took the opportunity to write a bill that looks at this problem from the perspective of the farmer … We want agriculture’s concerns to be addressed. This is one of the most important sectors of our economy and it is the sector of our economy most impacted by labor shortages.”
