Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (S. 1932) and the hope for visa number increase

The House and Senate have individually passed different versions of the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (S. 1932).

The two bodies must now appoint conferees to negotiate compromise legislation. As of early December, most experts are predicting passage of this legislation before the end of December. Whether it will contain the much needed visa relief provisions contained in the Senate version is not known.
