Chairman Goodlatte Addresses New Immigration Bill at American Dairy Coalition Meeting
Through the use of modern technology, the Chairman of the Judiciary speaks to dairy producers and allied industry during last week during the World Dairy Expo
ADC held an informative session highlighting the details of the recently introduced Agriculture Guestworker Act (AG Act) at this year’s World Dairy Expo event. Before a standing-room-only crowd, a message recorded especially for ADC’s attendees by Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) was played to provide an overview of his AG Act bill. This bill will create a new visa category, the H-2C, that will replace the outdated and cumbersome H-2A visa category. The Ag Act will provide a workable solution to provide dairy operations access to year-round, safe and reliable labor.
Attendees engaged in a question and answer session led by ADC Founder and CEO, Laurie Fischer and had the opportunity to provide feedback that will go to Chairman Goodlatte.
