A bipartisan group of senators introduce a high-skilled immigration bill, the Immigration Innovation Act, which is expected to result in a significant increase in the number of H-1B visas available to skilled foreign-born workers.
The bill is likely to see the cap on H-1B visas to rise from 65,000 to 115,000. A "market-based H-1B escalator" is also going to be created, allowing for additional visas to be made available if the cap is hit early during a particular year.
Commenting on the H-1B reforms, Republican Senator and co-sponsor of the bill Orrin Hatch said that passing the measure is "very doable" and encouraged other members to support future reforms to immigration laws.
