Ag Labor

The agricultural community is dependent on a sustainable workforce now more than ever. 

Current State

  • The current H-2A ag guest worker visa program needs major statutory reforms if it is to be a workable solution for the entire agricultural industry.

ARA's Position

  • Support the establishment of a comprehensive immigration reform policy that provides for a new, usable ag guest worker visa program that secures borders, allows current farm workers to apply for legal status, and has a reliable verification system

Each year, ARA membership decides a new set of policy issues the association will focus on with elected officials and key regulatory agencies in Washington, D.C. The established set of policy issues typically drive discussions during the annual ARA Legislative Fly-In. View the list of main policy priorities.


DC Help Desk

ARA's DC Help Desk member service is a direct line to ag public policy experts. Send regulatory and legislative questions to the DC Help Desk for support. ARA members may also use this service to request help when scheduling a facility tour with their elected official in Congress.
