A group of senators is preparing to introduce a bill aimed at increasing the current H-1B visa cap to at least 115,000, with further increases in response to demand, up to a maximum of 300,000. The bill would do away with limits on H-1B visas from specific countries and would not count graduates of U.S. universities in specific fields toward the cap. It is expected to be introduced this week but is likely to face opposition from key committee members in both parties.
