New legislation has been introduced in Congress that would help dairy farmers find workers. The Helping Labor Personnel Farms Act, better known as the HELP Act, would give agriculture workers legal work status for two years. Congressman Chris Collins (R-Clarence) showed public support for the bill last week. WBFO's Nick Lippa spoke with New York Farm Bureau Public Affairs Manager Steve Ammerman on how this bill would impact AG labor.
