    There is a bill H.R 3701 which addresses the V visa, is pending in the house of judiciary committee.

    Here is an e-mail from Congresman Rob Andrews' (NJ) Office:

    "I wanted to inform you that we have drafted legislation to extend the V-Visa Program, and we intend to introduce the legislation shortly after Congress comes back into session on January 20th. This bill would extend the filing deadline to January 1, 2011 (an extension of ten years). It would also decrease the waiting period from 3 years to 6 months. Congressman Andrews' strongly believes that families should be given the opportunity to stay together, and we believe that this change will make this much more possible. Rep Sheila Jackson-Lee, the Ranking Member of the Immigration Subcommittee, has already agreed to be an original cosponsor. Thank you again for your support throughout this process--please feel free to contact me with any comments or questions"
