H-2B program update

Thank you to those who reached out to your elected officials about the H-2B letters that Representatives Harris and Tillis were spearheading. A third letter was sent last week to the Department of Homeland Security by Senators Collins (R-ME) and King (I-ME).

Please take some time to thank your representatives for signing the letters. In Colorado, that includes Representatives Jared Polis, Ken Buck, Mike Coffman, and Scott Tipton for signing the Harris Letter; and Senators Michael Bennet and Cory Gardner for signing the Tillis letter. Urge them to continue to ask their party leaders to pass H-2B cap relief quickly as part of appropriations or any other appropriate legislation. 

If your Representative did not sign these letters, please reach out again and urge them to ask their party leaders to pass H-2B cap relief quickly as part of appropriations or any other appropriate legislation. In Colorado, this includes Diana DeGette, Ed Perlmutter, and Doug Lamborn.

Additionally, Rep. Barbara Comstock (R-VA) and others plan have prepared a letter to the House Appropriations Committee urging them to prioritize reauthorization of the returning worker exemption for the H-2B seasonal worker visa program. Please call your representative today and ask him or her to sign this letter. The deadline for signatures is Friday, March 24. At this time, only Mike Coffman has signed this letter on behalf of Colorado.

You can reach your Representative through the Capitol switchboard at 202-225-3121 or find contact information for any of the Colorado delegation in this form.
