Green card provisions are always on IV's agenda. So when we go in Feb, we will surely be talking about that. There are enough reasons now to join for advocacy event.

Default Is applying for EAD once I140 is approved passed?

There is another rule that i heard for applying EAD for those who got 140 approved without waiting for the date to be current. Is that bill also passed? or was it ignored?

You may be talking about the Executive Actions by the President. Hope you read this long but very informative thread:

I'm new to this group but have been following such threads in the recent past. This will definitely benefit people from China & India.

How long it is going to take for implementation? What happens to those who have filed for 485 and waiting for GC based on ROW chargeability with very recent PD (Mar 2014)?

From what I understand,

The EAD for approved 140 rule is part of executive action. It is in making and will be implemented by October 2015. Please refer to another thread on the forum where Admin has answered questions. This does not need congressional action as it is not a Bill and it need not be passed. Please read the thread thoroughly and carefully to understand what was covered in rule making.

This bill - the (I d) act is introduced in congress. It will need passing in both Senate and House. However, not sure if the EAD for approved I-140 needs to be included as it is already in rule making process.
