Bill amendments may recapture Sched A visas for nurses

Over the past week, two amendments were offered in the US Senate that would recapture unused visas for Schedule A applicants, particularly foreign nurses, and their families. Hammond Law Group, in its Web site, said these amendments could be tackled as early as this week.

The first amendment seeks to recapture 61,000 unused visa. This amendment is being attached to the Labor Health and Human Services appropriations bill co-sponsored by Sen. Schumer and Sen. Hutchison.

The second amendment seeks to recapture visas not just for Schedule A workers and their family members but also for other Employment-based visa applicants.

We hope these amendments get approval and their parent bills later being signed into law.
