Congress Passes Stopgap Spending Bill - Extends EB-5 Through January 19, 2018.
[On December 21st] "both the House and Senate passed a stopgap spending bill which will avert a government shutdown through January 19, 2018, pending signature by President Trump which is expected sometime today. This extends the current sunset date for the EB-5 Regional Center Program as well, which was supposed to expire at midnight tonight.
IIUSA remains in close conversations with the Congressional offices working on EB-5 reform legislation and we are hopeful that action will occur prior to the new sunset date in January. As always, we will keep you informed of any developments when they occur. A reminder that you can review IIUSA's Policy Platform at anytime. This platform, developed and approved by our members and Board of Directors, guides the organizations conversations and positions around EB-5 reform.
