Editor's Comments of the Day
According to news reports when Sen. Jeffords leaves the Republican party on June 5 to become an independent, Sen. Biden will forego the opportunity to chair the Committee on the Judiciary and leave the position to the current ranking Democratic member of the committee, Sen. Leahy of Vermont. The NumbersUSA report on Sen. Leahy's immigration votes indicate that he voted against an increase in the H-1B cap in committee in 1998 and 2000, but voted for these bills when they reached the floor of the Senate.

This Day in Immigration
From May 30, 2000
"On May 25, 2000, the Committee on the Judiciary Subcommittee on Immigration and Claims heard testimony on the status of regulations implementing the "American Competitiveness and Workforce Improvement Act of 1998." Sen. Jackson Lee noted that eighteen months had passed since the enactment of the legislation and expressed her hope that the hearing would shed light on the status of the regulations to implement it. Instead of enlightening the committee on the status of the regulations, testimony from the Coalition for Fair Employment in Silicon Valley simply called for the regulations to be issued. According to the Administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Office of Management and Budget, "final decisions have not yet been reached on the content of this rule. We are working steadily, but cannot predict precisely how long it will take to complete the review process." Not even a light at the end of the tunnel."
