H-2B program update

From the H-2B Workforce Coalition:

Congress must address federal spending bills for the remainder of fiscal year 2017 by April 28 in order to avoid a government shutdown. Congress needs to hear a steady drum beat from H-2B users across the country if we are going to be successful in re-instating the returning worker exemption through a year-end spending bill. Your help is crucial in this endeavor.

H-2B program update

The H-2B Workforce Coalition is organizing a fly-in on April 26. According to NALP, "The timing corresponds with the deadline for Congress to adopt a 2017 budget. Currently, the federal government is operating under a continuing resolution that extended 2016 budget allocations until April 28. If Congress fails to act prior to that date, the federal government would be forced to shut down. We are working with Congressional champions on strategy to include a returning worker exemption extension for 2017 in the budget measure that Congress will need to act on to avoid a shutdown."

Details on the fly-in will be posted here they are available. ALCC invites fellow members and H-2B users to join ALCC leaders for this one-day effort. The delegation will address issues around the H-2B visa program, including:
