Amodei Statement on Department of Labor Farm Chores Rule

Press Release

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Mark Amodei (NV-2) issued the following statement regarding the Department of Labor's proposed rule for children working on family farms, which would prohibit them from the "storing, marketing and transporting of farm product raw materials." The new regulations would also reject safety training and certification taught by such American institutions as 4-H and Future Farmers of America in order to replace it with a 90-hour federal government training course.

Congressman Amodei:

"I'm sure the Nevada members of 4-H and FFA are very impressed with President Obama's understanding of farming and ranching in our state. I'm astounded at the tone deafness of the administration in attempting to brush aside a collective 200 years of agricultural experience and tradition."
