Appears that we will know tomorrow: "By late Monday night, Senate aides said, Mr. Hatch was closing in on a deal with the bipartisan group, and was expected to offer his high-tech amendments on Tuesday."

http://www.nytimes.com/2013/05/21/us...pagewanted=all

All eyes on Hatch 8 tomorrow. That would eliminate the 5-yr limit on STEM I believe. Hoping that any changes ('second degree' amendments) to it are minor. Also look out for Cruz 4, but am not optimistic on that one.

Even if Hatch is not successful, the House will pull the final bill more to the right, which means more generous terms for high tech. So tomorrow is not the end.

I've lobbied Senators Schumer and Hatch already.

Sen Schumer and Hatch reached a deal with the Hatch amendment. We also have Early filing of Adjustment of status when the visa number is not available in the amendment. Plus, new portability of the labor certification and carrying the dates etc.

The mark-up just started, and Hatch-Schumer amendment will come up for vote later today.

As you can tell, per-country has been and will always be the priority for IV. We have not yet received the confirmation for clarify with the dates for the removal for the country cap, but perhaps its worth sharing that it we will make sure that the language provides clarity before the bill passes the Senate. Of'course, we will need all the help from everyone.

From all I get - looking at all these amendments, Hatch 8 is dead and will be withdrawn. Removal of 5yr STEM limitation is dead as well...

Default House Bill

Does this mean that house bill will be mainly for legal immigrants and in it's form would be beneficial for EB categories (as it includes provision of HR3012)..

Anytime the bill is introduced, that is the starting point of the discussion. Which is why we ask everyone to be more engaged so we could petition/request/advocate amending/making changes to the bill.

Yes, HR-3012 had phased in approach because it did not add green card numbers. Any bill that adds green card numbers should not require phased in approach. But we need to work to make it happen.

Yup, HR 3012 or 633 means, another 3-4 yrs of waiting time at the minimum, and Visa Number recapture, and exclusion of Dependents from count, are not in. The House version looks less helpful.

correct. it is less effective than senate version of bill.

We should reach out to them to include additional provisions like removing dependents and EB1 qualifiers. as well as applying all the counts at worldwide level immediately.
