The H-1B CAP Has Been Reached

On April 7, 2017, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services ("USCIS") announced that between April 3, 2017 and April 7, 2017, USCIS received more than enough applications for new H-1B visas for the 2018 government fiscal year. The announcement can be found here. Applications exceeded the quota, for both the regular 65,000 limit (also called a "cap") and the additional 20,000 limit for persons who have an advanced degree (more than a bachelor degree) from a U.S. university. Because more applications than the quota permits were received for both Bachelor's and Master's cap cases in the first five business days of April, USCIS will use a lottery system to randomly select the number of petitions required to reach the numerical limit. USCIS will reject petitions that are subject to the cap and are not randomly selected.

Window On Washington - This Week in the Nation's Capital

Congress

Budget/Appropriations

  • Budget Work Stymied: With the House and Senate headed for a mid-April recess, work on completing the Fiscal Year 2017 appropriations for 10 of the 11 appropriations bills remains unfinished despite an approaching April 28th deadline when the current Continuing Resolution expires. 

The House passed a completed Defense Appropriations bill earlier this month in the hopes that the Senate would follow before the end of April with an Omnibus Appropriations measure that integrates the remaining nine appropriations bills.

However, with just three weeks left before the Easter/Passover recess, the Senate calendar to take up a spending bill seems unlikely given Majority Leader McConnell's stated desire to take up legislation to repeal Obamacare and the nomination of Neil Gorsuch to serve on the Supreme Court health care reform.

Meanwhile, members of both parties continued to take exception to the deep cuts proposed in the President's 2018 budget that would be used as an offset to pay for a proposed $54 billion increase in military spending.

While the President's "skinny budget" was released on March 16, full details for all agencies and all accounts are not likely to be released until mid-May.  In a memo to Agency heads this week, OMB Director Mick Mulvaney prohibited discussion of any spending details not mentioned in the March 16 budget release until they are presented in mid-May.  As a result, several hearings had to be cancelled this week (Fox News).

Despite these challenges, the Appropriations Committees remain working to be prepared to wrap up the FY 2017 appropriations by the end of April and are still working to receive requests related to FY 2018 from members of the House and Senate in April and May to be ready to mark up those bills once the House and Senate leadership decide how to proceed on the FY 2018 budget (Bloomberg).

"The State of Consumer Finance Services in the Trump Presidency"

By: Joann Needleman

As of the writing of this article, President Donald Trump has been in office for two months. During his candidacy, he vowed to roll back Dodd-Frank and the financial services regulations he claims are hurting economic growth. While several proposals are now floating through Congress which look to alter core components of the Dodd-Frank law, the intended target by far is the elimination and/or restructuring of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB or bureau).

Clark Hill Attorneys Jane C. Luxton and Linda M. Watson to Present In-House Counsel Webinar “The Antitrust Refresher You Really Might Need” on February 21, 2017

Clark Hill attorney Linda M. Watson will moderate an in-house counsel webinar, “The Antitrust Refresher You Really Might Need,” on February 21, 2017, with guest speaker Jane C. Luxton of Clark Hill’s Washington, DC office.

Most companies think they have antitrust covered, but the Justice Department's most recent list of corporate fines in antitrust prosecutions indicates that even the largest, most sophisticated companies may be wrong in this assumption. The list published, January 12, 2017, shows that four of the ten highest fines ever for antitrust violations were imposed in 2017, and the year has barely begun. With fines in the hundreds of millions of dollars becoming the norm, and Fortune 500 companies peppering the list, it may be time for in-house counsel to consider an antitrust refresher.

Luxton, formerly a senior trial attorney at the Justice Department's Antitrust Division, will reinforce the basics and cover evolving trends in antitrust enforcement actions, including both U.S. and increasingly relevant foreign law prosecutions. She will also offer views on what to expect from Trump Administration antitrust enforcement.
