H-2B Exemption to Expire Next Month Unless Key Legislation is Passed!

Send Sen. Lamar Alexander, Sen. Bob Corker, and Rep. Jim Cooper, an email from Contact Congress to urge their support of The Save Our Small and Seasonal Business Act (S. 988, H.R. 1843) that would extend the H-2B exemption.

Let them know that this critical legislation would help small business employers who are reliant on seasonal workers to hire qualified individuals to work during peak months. The bill would provide relief by extending an existing exemption in the H-2B visa cap for experienced foreign workers who have participated in the H-2B program within the past three years, have followed all our laws while here, and then returned to their native countries as required. This exemption is set to expire on September 30, 2007 unless the provisions of S. 988/H.R. 1843 are passed.

Visit Contact Congress to send Sen. Lamar Alexander, Sen. Bob Corker, and Rep. Jim Cooper, a message TODAY! at www.aila.org. Encourage your employer-clients to do the same!

If your legislator is already a cosponsor of S. 988 or H.R. 1843, you will automatically be directed to a letter thanking them for their support of this issue.
