OMB Meeting Focuses on H-2 Program Delays, SolutionsAmericanHort met last month with officials of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and the Department of Labor to discuss how to avoid or minimize H-2A and H-2B program processing delays in the months and years ahead. We set the stage by describing the growing labor challenges confronting the industry and the fact that these two programs are the only seasonal labor safety nets available to our member employers. Pressure on the programs is growing, yet there are antiquated processes and poor inter-agency coordination. With changes looming in the months ahead, we felt it important to open a dialogue about progress and continuing challenges with these critical programs.
