Potential Fix to H-2B Floated in House, Quickly Goes Down to Defeat
On Tuesday, Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R, VA) introduced an amendment to a compromise bill that sought to resolve many of the immigration issues currently being debated. Included in the bill were provisions that would have required the use of E-Verify for new employees in exchange for permanent exemption from the cap for H-2B workers, something that would have provided great relief to NALP members that rely heavily on temporary guest workers.

NALP’s H2B Advisory Committee was in support of the proposed H2B provisions; however, the H-2B language was removed from the bill late Tuesday evening and, due to other contentious issues revolving around immigration such as DACA and the border wall, the bill ultimately went down to defeat on Wednesday. The good news to take away from this defeat is that Congress continues to hear about the need for permanent H-2B reform. read more…

Legislative Update from BCB Government Relations

Legislative Environment
The Legislature will cease formal sessions for the 2017-2018 term at midnight (or around there) on Tuesday, July 31, 2018.  After this date, the House and Senate will continue to meet twice each week for informal sessions until the new and re-elected legislators are sworn-in on the first Wednesday of January 2019.  During these sessions, only matters deemed non-controversial can advance and any single member may object to any matter, blocking it from moving forward.  So, anything that will be debated or that requires a roll call vote must be done prior to midnight on July 31st.

With the deadline looming, the Legislature has kicked into high gear and the House and Senate have passed several matters that are now being negotiated in conference committee, including the FY19 budget, short-term rentals (AirBnB), data breach, red flag/ERPO (gun ownership), veteran benefits, health care cost containment and civics education.  The next tier of issues includes another package on opioid abuse prevention and treatment, wage theft, raising the age to purchase tobacco and clean energy.  The hundreds of smaller issues still pending can fight to move ahead but not if there is even a moderate amount of disagreement. read more…
