Administration Has No Plans to Re-Introduce Farm Labor Rules

Kansas Senator Jerry Moran pressed Acting U.S. Department of Labor Secretary Seth Harris on the farm labor rules originally proposed by the Obama Administration in April of 2012 - asking for confirmation the Department would not reintroduce the rules. Harris made it clear the farm labor rules will not be proposed again during the remainder of the Obama Administration. Moran had serious concerns about the previously proposed rules - as the Labor Department proposed doing away with successful farm safety training and certification programs like cooperative extension, 4-H and FFA. Moran led several Senators in asking former Labor Secretary Hilda Solis to withdraw the proposed rules.
