It has been reported by the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) that the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has cleared for publication an interim regulation titled "Petitions Filed on Behalf of H-1B Temporary Workers Subject to the Annual Numerical Limitation." It is believed that this rule addresses the filing of duplicate petitions in the upcoming H-1B "lottery." Given that April 1 is only a few days away, it is anticipated that the regulation will be cleared by the USCIS quickly and be published in the Federal Register, whereupon, it will become effective.  We will keep you updated as developments occur.
