This will be a major milestone in our a very long journey towards green card. I am hoping to get similar success in Senate as well.....with this bill it will cut down our wait time in decades.......

Didn't understand why the voting lasted more than the allocated 15 mins.

And why did it require 2/3 majority for it to pass? I thought simple majority is all we needed. Will we required 2/3 majority in senate as well? I think key now is that it comes to senate floor for voting.

CSPAN has the title of the vote wrong
The CSPAN narrator kept on saying "Bill to increase foreign visas" for HR 3012 :(

Why 2/3?
Why did we need 2/3 majority instead of just 50%+1?

whiz 11-29-2011 07:46 PM
