The Hammond Law Group (HLG) announced the introduction of two (2) new bills in the United States senate believed to be beneficial to international healthcare workers, specifically nurses and physical therapists.
...
The first bill is a re-introduction of last year's SKIL Bill (S. 1083). Introduced by Senator John Cornyn, it is co-sponsored by four other Senators. Among them, Senator Kay Hutchison, known supporter of Schedule A visa reform advocacies. Last month, Hutchison introduced an amendment to the 9/11 bill seeking to recapture 90,000 visas for foreign nurses and physical therapists. It was, however, deleted from the approved version of the bill.

HLG speculates that this year's new SKIL Bill will contain the same provisions as the previous one removing the cap for nurse visas.

.....
The second bill (S. 1092), seeking to raise the H-1 visa quota, was sponsored by Nebraska Senator Chuck Hagel. Last week, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) said that H-1B cap was immediately reached one day after it started receiving applications.
