Federal Legislation

Federal Legislation: S. 1034 – Agricultural Worker Program Act

The Agricultural Worker Program Act would allow many undocumented farm workers and their family members the opportunity to earn legal immigration status and citizenship. Under the Agricultural Worker Program Act, farm workers who have worked in agriculture for at least 100 days in each of the past two years may earn lawful “blue card” status.

Federal Legislation: Fair and Open Competition Act

The Fair and Open Competition Act would prevent federal agencies and recipients of federal assistance from requiring contractors to sign an anti-competitive and costly project labor agreement (PLA) as a condition of winning a federal or federally assisted construction contract. It also would eliminate discriminatory PLA preference policies that discourage competition and may result in needless delays, waste and favoritism during the procurement of taxpayer-funded construction projects.
