House Approves Bill Supporting Family Farms

The House on Tuesday approved H.R. 4157, the Preserving America’s Family Farms Act, by voice vote. In a letter to House members sent earlier this week, the American Farm Bureau Federation and a number of other agriculture-related organizations expressed support for passage of the bill.

The legislation preserves the ability of youth to gain training and education by working on the farm. It also protects the agricultural way of life from future child labor regulations that could limit the ability of youth to learn valuable skills by working on the farm.
