Short Take: Bill to increase visa quota for skilled foreign workers approved

Urged on by the computer industry, the House immigration subcommittee has approved a bill to temporarily increase the annual visa quota for high-skilled foreign professionals, according to the Associated Press. The bill was faulted by both Democrats and Republicans for failing to earmark money to train U.S. workers to fill the high-tech jobs employers say they currently need foreigners to perform.
