Congressman Bob Latta (R-Bowling Green) cosponsored the Preserving America's Family Farms Act, H.R. 4157, which prohibits the U.S. Department of Labor from implementing any regulation that would restrict farm youth from working on family-owned farms.

"The proposed youth labor regulation is a misguided idea that threatens the ability of America's youth to work on their family's farm," said Latta. "Less than one percent of Ohioans earn a living on the farm, and another intrusion from Washington on the agriculture community could prevent our nation from building the next generation of farmers," added Latta.
