Oct 6, 2017Plan to replace H-2A with Agricultural Act of 2017 unveiled
Rep. Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., this week unveiled a bill to create a new agricultural guestworker program. The Agricultural Guestworker Act of 2017 (AG Act) replaces the H-2A program with a more efficient, flexible and market-driven guestworker program – known as H-2C – that aims to meet the needs of the diverse agriculture industry.
The markup of the bill was originally set for Oct. 4, but was postponed by the House Judiciary Committee. Goodlatte is chair of that committee.
