HR 3012 kickstarted in Senate
 
Senate Floor Wrap up Saturday 17, 2011:

Senate Floor Wrap Up for Saturday, December 17, 2011 | Senate Democrats

Rule XIV Process link:

http://www.llsdc.org/attachments/wys...RS-RS22299.pdf

The Senate will next convene for legislative business on Monday, January 23, 2012 at 2:00 PM.

This is the best way to avoid Grassley's objection to this bill...

As this rule avoild Senate Judiciary Commitee, which Grassley is Ranking member, this means its directly placed under Senate Calendar. Once it's scheduled, it will be voted and as Democrats are showing this intent (who are majority) in senate and Republicans are in favor of this bill (as seen in House)..nobody can stop HR 3012 now...

Great Great News

!!! Indeed its a good news !!!
But do NOT let your efforts take any rest till we get there. Keep doing what you are doing. And spread the message as much as you can.

Keep UP the good work with responsibility and continue to do your part.

Keep calling the Senators and request them to support 3012:Here is the link again that lists all the Senators of the 112th Congress:

U.S. Senate: Senators Home

MEASURES READ THE FIRST TIME--H.R. 440 AND H.R. 3012 -- (Senate - December 17, 2011)
[Page: S8782] GPO's PDF
---

Mr. REID. Mr. President, I am told there are two bills at the desk due for their first reading.

The PRESIDING OFFICER. The clerk will read the titles of the bills for the first time.

The assistant legislative clerk read as follows:

A bill (H.R. 440) to provide for the establishment of the Special Envoy to Promote Religious Freedom of Religious Minorities in the Near East and South Central Asia.

A bill (H.R. 3012 ) to amend the Immigration and Nationality Act to eliminate the per-country numerical limitation for employment-based immigrants, to increase the per-country numerical limitation for family-sponsored immigrants, and for other purposes.

Mr. REID. Mr. President, I now ask for a second reading, and object to my own request, all en bloc.

The PRESIDING OFFICER. Objection is heard.

Dear Sundaram,

Excellant.
I have read the article fully just now, thanks to Lost_in_migration.
You have done something which MANY I know who really need this are not doing.
You have your GC, yet you flew from CA to DC and were knocking doors for us.
We need Leaders like you. I wish I could do the same.


Thank You Once Again,
Sri.

Calling Senators is not on the Action Items List yet. Am I missing some thing?

Doing so will be DETRIMENTAL to the cause. If you are a political strategist, then contact info@immigrationvoice.org and discuss with them.

If you know nothing about advocacy and strategy, then please follow IV CORE directions blindly. They have a top advocacy consulting company (Patton Boggs) helping us. If we do out own action items, and the advice is different, we would be wasting our efforts AND doing more harm than good.

Hi sap_sachin
I don't see the words like "Began the Rule 14 process of H.R.3012" in Senate's daily digest on Dec 17,2011. I see only under MEASURES READ THE FIRST TIME--H.R. 440 AND H.R. 3012 (page S8782)
Congressional Record - 112th Congress (2011-2012) - THOMAS (Library of Congress)
pdf copy of page S8782
http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/CREC-20...2-6.pdf#page=1
Any how it is good sign our bill keep moving in senate.

Really Nice Job by Sundaram
 
Like Mr.Sundaram all fellow GC hoders should support H.R. 3012 in a big way following Action items of IV.
