IIUSA Advocacy Alert – September 13, 2018

Today House of Representatives Appropriations Committee Chairman Rodney Frelinghuysen (R-NJ) announced the Committee will introduce legislation to fund the government through December 7, 2018Frelinghuysen
.
The continuing resolution includes language that extends authorization of the EB-5 Regional Center Program. While this extension is temporary, it gives IIUSA and its partners renewed opportunities to push for a long-term reauthorization for the critical immigration and economic development program after the elections in the lame duck and new 116th Congress.
.
Once the House of Representatives passes this measure, it will go to the Senate for consideration and then on to the President for his signature.
.
IIUSA staff is actively supporting a clean reauthorization on Capitol Hill in recent weeks and days to ensure the EB-5 program continues to be authorized, and working toward meaningful reform and long-term authorization.

Today’s announcement from the House of Representatives is good news. If you have any questions about this update, do not hesitate to to contact advocacy@iiusa.org or call Interim Executive Director, Aaron Grau, directly at (202) 795-9661.
