No resolution on ag labor reform

No resolution on ag labor reform

The National Potato Council is disappointed Congress couldn’t reach an agreement on ag labor reform in the lame duck session. CEO Kam Quarles says it was too heavy of a lift to include in the year-end spending package.

“The second part: unfortunately, agriculture was divided again on the needs for ag labor reform. We’ve had three major efforts at this in the last almost 20 years: 2005, 2013 and 2022.”

Quarles is not optimistic ag labor reform will be possible in 2023.
