Steuben Legislators to Show Support for Farmers; Recognize Prevent Abuse Recipient:
When it meets on Monday, the Steuben County Legislature is expected to recognize an individual or agency dedicated to preventing child abuse in Steuben County, and oppose the state’s proposed Farmworkers Fair Labor Practices Act. The “Child Abuse Prevention Recognition Award” is part of the county’s month-long participation in the national Prevent Child Abuse campaign and recognizes an individual or group making special strides to put a stop to abuse or neglect in Steuben. Legislators are also expected to urge the state to hold local public hearings to learn more about the impact of the proposed extension of collective bargaining rights to farm laborers through the Farmworkers Fair Labor Practices Act. Opponents of the act say the proposal would impose a crippling cost, statewide, of $300 million annually on farmers.
