A few moments ago, the House Appropriations Committee released the FY17 Draft of the Department of Homeland Security bill. The bill does NOT include a returning worker exemption. We need your help to get the provision included in the bill through an amendment.

If your Representative is on the committee list below or you have a relationship with anyone on the list, please call and urge him or her to VOTE YES ON A AN H-2B RETURNING WORKER AMENDMENT THAT MAY BE OFFERED DURING THE FULL COMMITTEE MARKUP NEXT WEEK! The amendment would be a one year extension of the current H-2B returning worker exemption through the FY17 Department of Homeland Security Appropriations Bill. You can reach you Representative through the Capitol Switchboard at 202-225-3121.

Please pass along any feedback about whether or not the Member will vote for the amendment.
