DORGAN AMENDMENT TO SUNSET Y VISA PROGRAM DEFEATED

Rate this Entry

It was a close one with 49 votes against and 48 for. Senator Akaka changed his vote three times! This measure would have sunset the Y program after five years. I love how the supporters of the amendment made it sound soooo easy to extend a program. That's completely dishonest. It's very easy for a worthy program to fail to get extended simply because Congress gets distracted or short term issues mean the support for extension disappears. Anyone remember the H-1A nursing visa that sunset in 1995? The American Nursing Association snookered Congress into thinking the nurse shortage was over because some new data came out showing the shortage easing. But as we all know, that was just a short blip in the numbers and the shortage is now dire and getting worse. Were it not for that sunset provision, we would have a lot more nurses.
