House to Vote on STEM Bill Next Week

Rate this Entry

From the National Journal:



House Majority Leader Eric Cantor and Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy
gathered some of Washington's biggest tech players in McCarthy's
conference room this morning to ask them to back an immigration bill
they plan to bring to the floor next week, according to attendees in the
room.


The legislation, sponsored by House Judiciary Chairman Lamar Smith,
would create a new green card category for foreigners who have received
doctorate degrees from U.S. universities in science, technology,
engineering and math (the so-called STEM disciplines). Green cards not
used by PhDs would be available to those with STEM master's degrees.


The
idea that the government should "staple a green card to the diplomas"
of foreign students who have earned an advanced degree at a U.S.
university has been a favorite talking point of both Democrats and
Republicans for years.



This sounds like good news, but we need to see the details. Stay tuned.
