Default Realistic chances

Hi,

We've of late been caught up with the comparision between the Specter and Frist bills. I may have missed earlier threads, but how realistic are the chances of either of these going through in more or less unmodified form and becoming laws?

Just want to get a feel of what you folks think.

The following is a sample of what we're up against...

http://sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cg...NGV9HLVAE1.DTL

======================
Nor has Sen. Dianne Feinstein, a California Democrat on the Judiciary
Committee, shown much enthusiasm for more skilled workers, preferring
her own plan for a guest-worker program limited to agriculture.
Feinstein questioned the tech proposals in an interview last week.
Her stance has angered California's high-tech business community.
Industry officials said CEOs from California and across the country have
pleaded with Feinstein to no avail. They complain that she is ignoring
the technology industry, which they contend is vital to the state's
economy, but is willing to provide amnesty to 900,000 Mexican
farmworkers, most of whom work in California.
======================

"preferring her own plan for a guest-worker program limited to
agriculture"

this is old news really. At that point in time, even the thought of the frist bill containing our provisions was a stretch .. how realistic are our chances ? nobody can say for sure .. we all know the House is not exactly in a rush to increase any immigration, but then there are a number of business interests which have been strongly pushing for immigration reform.So only time will tell .. we all hope at least some of the favorable provisions will make it through.

" this is old news really. "

Yes, I never said it was new

Thanks for the reply dixie. I was hoping for a more objective and granular evaluation. Has anyone investigated the real possibilities based on the different senators at various levels and their takes on these issues. I see dixie's point, but I'm interested in knowing if someone has put each senator involved in the decision making process under the microscope, in order to determine what our chances are. It would be interesting, at the very least.

Default Dianne Feinstein supports increase in H1Bs

There was news about this on NPR a quick google came up with the following

At - http://sanjose.bizjournals.com/sanjo...0/daily13.html
Speaking to the Silicon Valley Leadership Group in San Jose, Feinstein said she will support an increase in the H1B because "we have to ensure that we have the best and the brightest people here," she said.
Also see - http://cbs5.com/localwire/localfsnew...urces_bcn_html

But that hardly matters to us. But it does prove that she has legal immigrants in mind.

Any idea how long they are supposed to debate it in senate? How long will it take to get past conference? When will it be reintroduced after conference in Congress? When will the president sign it?

Man...how in hell do they ever pass a law?

Patience, PD :-)

Think about it another way. In which other country can you get the proposed bill text before hand, compare it with existing law, analyze the effect of the proposed changes, and hire a lobbyist to go to bat for you with the people who make law? Isn't this country great?
