Cornyn Joins Senate Members Against Department of Labor

U.S. Senator John Cornyn has joined other senate members in an act which would prevent the Department of Labor from restricting children from working on farms.

Cornyn said in a release today “Our effort to halt the unfair targeting of family farms is proof positive that folks of all political stripes can agree the regulatory onslaught from this Administration has got to come to an end.”

The DOL has proposed rules that would prohibit anyone under the age of 18 from working with livestock, operating machinery and working at stockyards and grain and feed facilities. Many argue the proposal is sloppy, and would result in absurd restrictions such as not allowing teens to use power drills or pressurized water hoses. Many also argue that the restrictions would severely impede organizations such as 4-H and FFA.
