  • May 1 - Actual Text For H2B And EB5

    Comment: Actual Text For H2B And EB5

    New legislation from Congress has provisions affecting H2B and EB5, see below.

    The bipartisan agreement reached to fund the government till September 30, 2017, includes language reauthorizing the EB5 Regional Center program without any modifications till September 30, 2017. Please see the bill text here and the explanation from the House Rules committee here (it is section 542 in Title V for DHS Appropriations within the Omnibus Appropriations Bill). Votes are expected in the House on Wednesday and the Senate on Thursday.

    This may be the last hurrah for the Regional Center program as it has existed for about a decade. Come September 30, 2017, it is likely that the program will be dramatically transformed--raising the investment amounts, changing TEA definitions, increased compliance requirements, etc., as consensus to make fundamental changes to the program keeps building, and as more enforcement actions by SEC and others continue this Spring and Fall. At that point we expect the "New" Regional Center program to be reauthorized for five years.

    Regional Centers now have 5 months - from May through September - to raise EB-5 money on current terms using their current documents.Projects which move quickly and decisively can use these upcoming five months to aggressively complete their raises before the program is radically transformed in September 30, 2017. ILW has events in Miami, India, Korea, Taiwan, Vietnam and China planned during the next few months - see here for more information.

    Section 543 in Title V for DHS Appropriations and Sections 111, 112 and 113 in Title I for Department of Labor Appropriations within the Omnibus Appropriations Bill have provisions affecting the H2B program.
