HLG is again attending meetings in Washington DC. The purpose of the meetings is to persuade US Congressional Senior Staff that there is an urgent need for a Schedule A retrogression cure NOW. We will continue to push for a recapture provision, much like the 2005 effort.

Our message will be that while we are very willing to “wait our turn” and that we fully back the STRIVE Act, this specific issue cannot wait for Congress to debate the many complicated issues involved with enacting STRIVE.

We leave tomorrow – Tuesday – and will post once we return – Thursday.

Unfortunately, we will miss this Blog’s one year anniversary, which is Tuesday March 27. When we first starting posting we had no idea that the Blog would need to last for a year. In hindsight, while we’re disappointed that Schedule A retrogression has yet to be solved, we’ve created a great little corner of the internet with some fantastic posters. Thanks for everyone who contributes.

Since this Blog is really everyone’s, feel free to post YOUR birthday wish for Year 2 of the HLG Healthcare & Immigration Blog.
