I always believed H1Bs are orphans with no political lobby. You see bills to ease GC of family based , children of illegal (Dream Act), Nurses but nothing for H1Bs.

Why ? H1B are too small in number. Industry likes, loves the current H1B labor and actually doesn't want GC for them. Lawyers want more fees from EAD etc. \
Also H1B are willing to come to work in spite of the abuses.

Only one that I logically feel MIGHT be possible...GC for STEM. Why? because foreign students might reduce and there is another powerful lobby group of Universities for
their cause.
