On 07/11/12 Senators Grassley entered a statement into the Congressional Record announcing that he and Senator Schumer had reached an agreement on additional H-1B enforcement provisions and was therefore lifting his hold on H.R. 3012.
H.R. 3012, the Fairness for High-Skilled Immigrants Act, introduced on September 22, 2011 by Rep. Chaffetz (R-UT), eliminates the employment-based per-country cap entirely by fiscal year 2015 and raises the family-sponsored per-country cap from 7% to 15%.
