I want to see a bill sponsored or co-sponsored by Sen. Grassley. If they don't have him, these bills are not going any where. It's just waste of time and resources.

No bills should be introduced before checking with the senators who have concerns; it's a waste of time and resource and moreover, makes the effort look frivolous.

Good if you want Sen. Grassley to sponsor or co-sponsor a bill. When are you planning to get Sen. Grassley to sponsor a STEM bill? Please let us all know so that no one here have to waste any time and resources.

It is good to see "Bills Introduced", but none of these new bills appear to address the "problem in hand" with backlogs in EB based immigration. Yes, it will help few get on other line and free up some numbers subject to CAP, but does not do enough to address the worst affected EB backlogs. Again it is just a Bill introduced, Not sure how far it can go in an election year congress. Any relief for EB immigration is welcome. Hope one of these bills gets through the congress for the President to sign. At the same time, hope the E3 mess is getting attention as well.

well said..i do not understand what we are celebrating here by congratulating these bills. these kind of bills come and go as seen before, also these bills are not even addressing any of our immediate issues. it makes me feel that we done with hr3012 and picking up something that not relevant at this moment. What are the chances of these bills getting passed, based on the climate, zero.

Senators Coons, Alexander introduce bill to keep foreign-born U.S. grad students here ‚Äúinstead of sending them home to create jobs in other countries‚ÄĚ | News Releases | U.S. Senator Chris Coons of Delaware


The SMART Jobs Act has been endorsed by Compete America, Oracle, Bloom Energy, Third Way, the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation, Tech America, the Silicon Valley Leadership Group, Immigration Voice, Delaware State University, and Steve Case, the CEO of Revolution LLC and a member of the Presidentís Council on Jobs and Competitiveness.

Yeah we are frustrated and know such bills come and go but there is still signifiance in the fact that there are legislative attempts being made at high-skilled immigration. Bottomline is that it is heartening that there is still some activity on high-skilled immigration and based on the above, IV is playing a role in the bigger picture. Merely sitting back in our chairs and calling BS on any bill that has our provisions is stupidity..we need to keep our eye out for these bills and whenever there is one (including HR3012) that gains traction..wait for IV action items. Being cynical is not going to help anyone.

S.1857/HR3012 is Part of 'Encourage Entrepreneurship and Growth' , the gentleman Senator from Iowa should remove the hold , because ,
  • S.1857/HR3012 will encourage innovation by liberating the scientists, doctors, nurses , hi-tech workers to get job mobility and go on to research new products, start new businesses and services , thus improving national economy.
  • will help to create new enterprises and hire more people to help grow the US national economy
  • will liberate them to move on and buy houses , thus create more jobs and improve the national economy, (will also bloster the housing loans and banks here)
  • will help them spend more with the greater sense of security than they will have now, improves overall consumer confidence and improves national economy
  • will make the best and brightest to be remain here in USA, rather than compete or start companies elsewhere other than USA, will improve nations jobs.
  • will also reduce outsourcing as some of them will go on and start training locally thus improving local economy
  • will create more jobs when folks buy homes , improves the construction-building industry thus improves economy

persistence , persistence , persistence and only persistence with HR3012
