Clarification: Farmworker Bus Accident-Florida story

OCALA, Fla. (AP) — In a story published May 14, 2024, The Associated Press reported that the Florida Fruit & Vegetable Association had opposed a Department of Labor seatbelt requirement for employer vehicles used for farmworkers on temporary visas. The story should have made clear that while the association had asked in a public comment that the overall rulemaking changes by the federal government be withdrawn, on the seatbelt requirement, the association merely said it was impractical from a compliance perspective. The association also said that growers should be considered in compliance if they have seatbelts on vehicles and a policy of requiring their use.
