Update on Immigration-related Amendments to the House Budget Bill

The last week the House has been debating a budget bill to keep the government open for the remainder of the year (ending September 30). The US budget is always from October 1 thuough September 30 the following year.

Rep. Hal Rogers (R-KY) introduced last week H.R. 1, commonly referred to as the continuing resolution (CR). As the current situation will expire soon either this proposal H.R. 1, or a different budget bill needs to be voted on and enacted into law by March 4, 2011. The current short-term budget will expire that day.

By now over 600 amendments were proposed and over 20 were immigration-related.

We will monitor this development and how it impacts foreign companies in their operation in the US.
