how do you find the real details (I mean not summaries from the Washington Post article, but actual text of the bill)? or do we have to wait for more info?

http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/query/z?c110:H.R.5642:

Excerpt from Matthew Oh:

03/15/2008: H.R. 5652 "SUSTAIN ACT' Introduced in the House on 03/14/2008 to Increase H-1B Cap in FY 2008 and FY 2009 to 195,000
  • Yesterday, Congressman from Texas, Lamar Smith, introduced this bill on the floor in the House to increase the H-1B cap numbers for FY 2008 and FY 2009 from 65,000/year to 195,000. This bill was then referred to the Judiciary Committee of the House for action. Please stay tuned to this website for the development of this legislative bill.
  • Caveat: This bill will take time for the action on the House floor as well as the Senate action. Consequently, it will not affect the April 1, 2008 FY 2009 H-1B cap filing. Employers will continue to prepare and file the petitions timely on April 1, 2008. However, should the bill pass both the House and the Senate before the start of FY 2009 (10/01/2008), FY 2008 and FY 2009 additional cap numbers are likely to be made available in the future. This bill is expected to face a steep opposition in the House and particularly in the Senate. Senator Durbin (D, IL) and Senator Grssley (R. IA) have been the strongest opponents for such bills in the past.

Default Something to consider

Something is smoking, but might not mean anything to us with this ongoing political turmoil.

Bill Gates testimony on immigrtation last week.
USCIS director resigned last week after the testimony
April VB, EB2 advanced trememdously
?????? May be some interim releif...

I think something is happening after the Gates testimony. For the testimony, check www.immigration-law.com
