We have 53 co-sponsors now. Rep. Rice, Tom [R-SC-7] was added yesterday.

I wish they bring up this Bill for voting soon.

Default Why advocay and not lobbying?

I appreciate all the efforts of IV admins and IV Volunteers.

I haven't posted here a lot, forgive me if I am being naive. Why don't we lobby for these bills to pass, instead of advocacy? I have seen bigger companies spend as little as $4000-5000 to gain congressmen support for some controversial bills. Is it against the law to lobby as a group?

Advocacy is a nice word for (unpaid) lobbying - and more.

Like lobbyists, we stalk the "lobby's" of Congress and do meetings (I was doing this on Monday) -- but we are more powerful than lobbyists because we can do district meetings, which lobbyists traditionally don't do. As constituent's we have more influence (and respect) than lobbyists. Everyone knows lobbyists have sold their souls to sell something they don't necessarily believe in - but when we go to DC, people realize that we have taken time off work, paid our own way to come down to DC, they respect that and want to hear what we want to say. If someone from (say) Alaska, Montana, the Dakota's flies down to a lobby day - I guarantee you we will get a meeting with all Congressmen and Senators in the state (not just their offices).


We can't donate money though, since it is illegal - everything else is fair game (and we do it).

Hi,
If the below rule comes in, Do we still need to worry about the dates ?

http://www.reginfo.gov/public/do/eAg...&RIN=1615-AC05

How different are both. Can any one help me in understanding this.

Thanks

No it doesn't. Do you know how much money has been thrown by the companies and traditional lobbyists for more H1-B?

They can't even get a bill introduced in this session of Congress. We have a bill and 53 sponsors.

most likely they wont let this rule see the light of the day...I already hear that the greedy desi companies are dumping their blood sucked money in to lobbying firms to keep this rule away.. so that they can keep thier slaves with them.

How about we dump some of our hard earned money into lobbying for it?
