Labor & Infrastructure
Labor & Immigration
The agriculture industry faces unique employment needs and challenges, and the current H-2A guest worker program is unworkable. Production agriculture requires sufficient farm labor resources in order to continue to supply the nation and the world with high quality food, fiber and fuel.
For production to continue in this country, agriculture must be supported by federal programs that allow for their labor needs to be met. Federal policies now and in the future must recognize the unique nature of agricultural work and our international competitiveness issues that require access to a flexible workforce. Additionally, farm safety is of the highest importance.
Transportation & Infrastructure
Improving our transportation infrastructure must be a national priority deserving urgent attention – sooner rather than later. Capacity constraints, structurally deficient bridges, deteriorating roads, and locks and dams long past their expected useful life require our full attention as a nation.
