                           MINA VAHEDI NOTASH

  The Clerk called the Senate bill (S. 869) for the relief of Mina 
  Vahedi Notash.
  There being no objection, the Clerk read the Senate bill as follows:

                                 S. 869

       Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of 
     the United States of America in Congress assembled,

     SECTION 1. PERMANENT RESIDENT STATUS FOR MINA VAHEDI NOTASH.

       (a) In General.--Notwithstanding subsections (a) and (b) of 
     section 201 of the Immigration and Nationality Act, Mina 
     Vahedi Notash shall be eligible for issuance of an immigrant 
     visa or for adjustment of status to that of an alien lawfully 
     admitted for permanent residence upon filing an application 
     for issuance of an immigrant visa under section 204 of such 
     Act or for adjustment of status to lawful permanent resident.
       (b) Adjustment of Status.--If Mina Vahedi Notash enters the 
     United States before the filing deadline specified in 
     subsection (c), he or she shall be considered to have entered 
     and remained lawfully and shall, if otherwise eligible, be 
     eligible for adjustment of status under section 245 of the 
     Immigration and Nationality Act as of the date of the 
     enactment of this Act.
       (c) Deadline for Application and Payment of Fees.--
     Subsections (a) and (b) shall apply only if the application 
     for issuance of an immigrant visa or the application for 
     adjustment of status is filed with appropriate fees within 2 
     years after the date of the enactment of this Act.
       (d) Reduction of Immigrant Visa Number.--Upon the granting 
     of an immigrant visa or permanent residence to Mina Vahedi 
     Notash, the Secretary of State shall instruct the proper 
     officer to reduce by 4, during the current or next following 
     fiscal year, the total number of immigrant visas that are 
     made available to natives of the country of the aliens' birth 
     under section 203(a) of the Immigration and Nationality Act 
     or, if applicable, the total number of immigrant visas that 
     are made available to natives of the country of the aliens' 
     birth under section 202(e) of such Act.

The Senate bill was ordered to be read a third time, was read the 
third time, and passed, and a motion to reconsider was laid on the 
table.
