While this looks ludicrous, it is very serious, and they have NOT dropped it, just fallen back right now to regroup. It is still very much an issue, and it will be raised again.
Fight back now, or we will have more ignorant laws to deal with. And more farms going under.
And while you think it can't happen? Just wait if it passes or a version of it does. Funny how they don't seem to be able to do anything about the crackhead parents, or the ones selling their kids to the sex trade, but are willing to wipe out kids working on farms.
Make no mistake, there is something behind this, beyond the "safety of farm kids", possibly the "need to have illegals/immigrants" to work if the kids are banned from it. Follow the money honey, is what I always say.
But this will come back, or be hidden in another bill and passed.
Be vocal, be alert to what is going on, and make sure you let your elected officials in DC and your capitol know what you think about this.
Or we will wake up and it will be law.
Horses make me a better person.
