The House Friday voted to increase the fees employers pay for each H-1B
high-tech visa to $1,000 in a measure sponsored by Rules Committee chairman
David Dreier, R-Calif. The voice vote was without dissent, although it's
unclear if the Senate will take similar action before Congress adjourns for
the year next week. The Senate on Tuesday in H-1B visas
but left to the House any effort to increase the fees employees pay.
