Omnibus Appropriation Legislation with EB-5 Extension Becomes Law
Today, President Trump signed the Omnibus Appropriations Act for Fiscal Year 2018, that includes an extension of the EB-5 program until Sept. 30, 2018, along with the Conrad 30 program for foreign doctors and the Special Immigrant Religious Workers program. The bill also includes a 3-year reauthorization of the E-Verify program (Sept. 30, 2020).
Today’s signing by the president follows the previously reported House passage (March 22) and Senate passage after midnight on March 23 with a bipartisan vote of 65-32.
The $1.3 trillion measure incorporates all twelve annual Appropriations bills for Fiscal Year 2018 (i.e., current year).
