Will H.R. 213: Fairness for High-Skilled Immigrants Act of 2015 follow its History?
History suggests this Bill will not make past the committee though the cosponsors for this Bill has been very good at 45 with 28 Republicans and 17 democrats supporting it.
The only drive for HR213 can be if it gets massive support by legal community and immense pressure to the Congress to fix the legal immigration System, else there is very bleak future for this Bill as history suggests the same.
Prognosis Per https://www.govtrack.us
25% chance of getting past committee.
7% chance of being enacted.
Similar bills: Only 15% of bills made it past committee and only about 3% were enacted in 2013–2015.
A Bill to be passed does not need any co-sponsors at all. A bill needs just one person to sponsor it. Once that’s achieved is goes to the calendar for scheduling to committee. It then goes a subcommittee. It will be voted out of the subcommittee and committee before it can proceed to the house and senate floor. The legislative body votes on the proposed bill after discussion and amendments. If the bill passes legislative body then it goes to the other legislative body for the same process. If that body passes the bill and if it is different from the bill passed by the first body. It will then go back to the original chamber for vote. The body may vote and pass it in its original form. If not it goes to conference committee to be rewritten. Then both bodies have to vote on it again. If that passes it goes to the President who can sign it, veto it, If it isn’t late enough and if the President neither vetoes or signs it then it will become law without his signature.
