PolitiHacks Digest – 10 June 2013 – What are the chances for startup visa? What are the range of implementation outcomes?

Currently, the comprehensive immigration reform bill contains a startup visa provision. It should work. So to get a startup visa, members of the startup community need to support passage of the comprehensive immigration reform bill.

Sen. Jerry Moran (R-KS) is proposing a set of fixes to improve the functionality of the startup visa provision. They will expand available funding sources, decrease the qualification barriers of funding or revenue levels that must be achieved, and in general tighten up the language to better fulfill the intent.

PolitiHacks has been supporting their efforts from the beginning, and we’re proud to see the amendment introduced on the Senate floor in the near future.
