The Senate Judiciary Committee will hold a hearing on ag labor reform tomorrow.
Iowa Republican Chuck Grassley says the seasonal H-2A Visa program will be under review.
“This program was created decades ago to secure a stable flow of legal agriculture labor into our country. Unfortunately, it doesn’t work well for many ag employers in Iowa (and elsewhere).”
On a call with ag reporters this morning, he says that’s because animal agriculture and ag processing are not seasonal businesses.
