The new law contains immigration provisions impacting, among other things, H-1B status, J-1 physician waivers, and EB-5 entrepreneurs. See InfoNet Doc. No. 02092734 (under the Related Links section to the right) for a previous summary of the Act's immigration provisions. A public law number has not yet been assigned.
