                              THE WHITE HOUSE

                       Office of the Vice President
________________________________________________________________________
                                   _____
For Immediate Release                           Contact: James E. Kennedy

                      STATEMENT BY THE VICE PRESIDENT

     Today, the Senate took an important step forward by providing temporary relief to high 
	 technology companies that are experiencing a shortage of skilled workers and increasing 
	 training opportunities for U.S. workers to meet those needs.  While I commend the Senate 
	 for its action, additional steps will have to be taken in the House to ensure that the 
	 legislation provides adequate funding for job training and education.

     I am disappointed that the Senate bill does not include the Latino Immigration Fairness 
	 Act. The Act would ensure fairness for immigrants now living and working in the U.S., 
	 and I call on Congress to pass it before adjournment.

                                    ###
