BREAKING NEWS: CONRAD 30 AND RELIGIOUS WORKER EXTENSIONS PASSED BY SENATE

Rating: 2 votes, 5.00 average.

This is great news especially since the House already passed extension bills for both those programs. The Senate is only extending the programs until March 30 6th just as E-Verify and the EB-5 program are extended in the House Continuing resolution. The House bills extended those programs for longer periods so they're still going to need to vote again, but given the previous approvals, this will hopefully not be seen as controversial and pass without much discussion. The votes could happen as early as this evening in the House.



[UPDATE: Thanks Young for the catch on the date in March when the extension expires]

    Pilot Program does not cover the regular eb-5 cases. Anyway, the Senate approved the Continuing Resolution passed by the House that contains a tempoary extension of EB-5 Pilot Program, so that means EB-5 Pilot Program has been extended, at least, until March 6th 2009. See below.

    I wonder when the Conrad and Religious Workers bills will be approved by the House? Maybe it has already.

    I hope I'm right, I think S.3606 (Religious Worker Visa Extension) was passed in the House this evening around 6:00 p.m.
