In an interview with AgriTalk Radio host Mike Adams, USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack says he is working with the Department of Labor to make sure agriculture's concerns about proposed child labor regulations are heard.  Speaking before Missouri and Iowa Farm Bureau members, he said the proposed regulations are still a work in progress.

“We’re working with the Department of Labor so when and if a rule is proposed that it makes sense, it is understood and it doesn’t disrupt that (farm) value system that is so important,” said Vilsack.
