House Scheduled to Vote on Budget Reconciliation Today

Fearing that it lacked the votes for passage, Republican leadership in the House of Representatives pulled the Budget Reconciliation package from floor consideration last Thursday. Leadership has rescheduled a vote on the measure for today. If it passes, leaders in the House and Senate will form a conference committee to resolve differences between the bills passed by the respective chambers. The Senate version provides relief from the H-1B blackout and EB-immigrant visa retrogression. The House version currently imposes a new $1500 fee on L visas. We will update you on developments via the website as the process unfolds.
