NWA and Industry Encourage Legislative
Action – Immigration Reform


While the Senate has been on recess this past week, the AG Industry has been working diligently with our contacts in the Senate to encourage them to take up the House-passed Farm Workforce Modernization Act with a number of needed and preferred changes. 

A broad sign-on letter from the industry (including the National Watermelon Association) was sent today to the U.S. Senate encouraging their leaders to take-up legislative action as quickly as possible. 

While the details are slowly coming together, it is vital that we get leadership to place immigration reform on the front burner. Stay tuned for more details and updates as they may arise.
