This is a Bill introduced in the Senate by Grassley and Derbin is a re-introduction of an earlier H1B Visa Bill. It is not Law.

It may get changed or not even considered. It will not become Law unless or until it is passed by the Senate and House of Representatives and signed into Law by the President. Most Bills are never passed into Law. All Bills passed into Law are never passed into Law in their original form. This Bill has no chance of passage into Law in its original form. So let's be patient and not panic.

Sens. Grassley (R-IA) and Durbin (D-IL) have re introduced their H-1B bill. They have introduced a version of this bill for the last several Congressional sessions.  

The last version of the bill included several significant changes to the H-1B process. That bill creates a preference system for the H-1B lottery, which prioritized H-1B workers in this order:

  • Masters (or greater) degree in STEM from a US university
  • Companies who offer a Level 4 wage for that H-1B worker 
  • Masters (or greater) degree in any other major from a US university
  • Companies who offer a Level 3 wage for that H-1B worker
  • Bachelor’s degree in STEM from a US university
  • Bachelor’s degree in any other major from a US university
  • Schedule A occupation
  • Good corporate citizens

Other components of the bill include:

  • H-1Bs must pay at least a level 2 wage for all H-1Bs - $130,000
  • Require a posting on USA jobs.gov for 30 days prior to filing an H-1B
  • Employer must certify that no US worker has been displaced and that the employer has attempted to recruit US workers
  • 50/50 employers are barred from the H-1B process
  • H-1B limited to 3 years, unless the H-1B worker has an approved I-140
  • Additional burden for employers who place workers at third-party worksites.
  • Increased investigative power for DOL
  • Changes to the L-1 program
