(Washington, DC.) Labor Department Withdraws Proposed Child Labor Rules

The U.S. Department of Labor announced it would withdraw its proposed rule limiting farm children’s involvement in agricultural activities. The National Corn Growers Association sent a letter to Labor Secretary Hilda Solis applauding her decision. NCGA looks forward to working with the Departments of Labor and Agriculture to develop an educational program that will promote safer agricultural practices. NCGA has previously worked with the American Farm Bureau Federation, the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association, National Farmers Union, National Milk Producers Federation, FFA and 4-H to address this issue.
