Federal Register Notice
Goodlatte’s Ag Act
The House Judiciary Subcommittee on Immigration and Border Security held a hearing last Wednesday (7/19/2017) on the topic of Ag Guestworkers and received testimony from Honorable David Valadao (Congressman of the 21st Division of California), Ms. Sarah Frey (CEO of Frey Farms), Mr. Jon Wyss (Owner of Gebbers Farms), and Mr. Giev Kashkooli (Vice President of United Farm Workers). The video of the hearing and the witnesses’ testimonies can be found here.
The Agricultural Workforce Coalition also submitted testimony for the record.
As you will hear in the video, Chairman Goodlatte announced his intention to introduce the Ag Act of the 113th Congress. It is unclear if Chairman Goodlatte will introduce his bill before the August recess. We will keep the NCAE membership updated should the bill be introduced!
