Summary of Day's Amendments to Senate Bill 744 - 5/16/2013

Rating: 4 votes, 5.00 average.

Title IV was finished and the Senate Judiciary Committee moved on to Title III dealing with interior enforcement. The EB-5 amendment was passed with little discussion, but is fairly massive - 31 pages - and will profoundly change that program. Here's my summary of the changes passed in today's markup. Next week, the markup will be all week and possibly evenings as well. The goal is to get the bill finished in the Judiciary Committee before the Memorial Day recess.

    Greg, I haven't had an opportunity to find out and was wondering if you know whether Senator Leahy's homosexual amendments and Senator Hirono's FB amendments have been withdrawn?

    There has been no news really on either. Markup on the sections where these would come up will be next week. I'm guessing that the Leahy language will be deferred for a floor amendment in hopes that the Supreme Court will make the issue largely moot (there is still some equality issues that would remain if DOMA were struck down, but the big issues would go away). But that is pure speculation on my part and I have no information one way or the other.

    Regarding Hirono, I have heard nothing.
