Michigan GOP Rep. Candice Miller today on the reg-happy Obama Administration’s withdrawal of their controversial (Brother Wisecracker is still spitting bullets) Ag Youth Labor regulations – kids work on farm?! – which were announced last fall:

“This is excellent news and clear that the Administration has finally heard the commonsense voices of America. Family farms are an important part of our heritage and critical to producing the abundant food our nation needs. Farmers learn technical skills and practical knowledge as young people helping out on the farms of their family and neighbors; not only do they gain valuable experience, but develop character and learn the importance of a strong work ethic. I heard from many of our family farmers across my district in opposition to this terrible proposed rule and was proud to have joined in support of legislation that would have prohibited this proposal from being enacted.”
