More on Agriculture
The Department of Labor agreed to revisit Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) policy after bipartisan, bicameral letters tell OSHA to stay off small farms.
On May 16, 2013, the House Agriculture Committee approved H.R. 1947, the Federal Agriculture Reform and Risk Management (FARRM) Act of 2013, by a bipartisan vote of 36-10.
The letter, signed by 18 bipartisan Members of the Caucus, outlines the importance of rural economic development funding while acknowledging all programs merit thoughtful consideration given our current fiscal situation.
