Congressman Leonard Boswell (IA-3) issued a statement on the Department of Labor's withdrawal of the child farm labor rule.
"I am pleased the Department of Labor stopped pursing the issue of limiting youth work on the family farm. Reasoned heads prevailed," Boswell said. "There are better, already existing educational resources through farm groups to educate and promote safety for young farm hands. I will work with those groups to keep farm workers of all ages safe."
