Default Hi-tech Hatch amendments delayed

Both Schumer and Hatch just said that they would like to deal with these amendments (the Hatch ones and Klobuchar 6) early next week. Their people are negotiating. Oh well. More delay. Hatch said these are important to the hi-tech world.

True, Hatch 8 is too long - bundles in too many things, but if the centerpiece of the amendment was likely to pass, the STEM degree elements would have passed more easily than as a standalone. Now it's been imperiled by the controversy over H1B issues.

Was reading the sponsors' amendment (http://www.judiciary.senate.gov/legi...(MDM13313).pdf). Look at Pg 315. It looks like if you have a PhD from outside the US, it helps you more than if you have a PhD within the US - if you fall into the latter category, your PhD must be in STEM, you have to have a job offer in that STEM field AND your PhD must have been within the last 5 years! Makes no sense.

They must do away with at least the 5 year thing, and removal of job offer and type of job should also help.

How are we trending on our proposals so far? Anything that we pushed forward that did not get accepted or something that is against us got accepted. Thanks IV for the hardwork.
