The Fiscal Year (FY) 2018 government funding bill passed in March included language that allows the Department of Homeland Security to work with the Department of Labor to increase the number of H-2B worker visas issued.

In order to ensure the administration makes timely determinations and resumes visa processing, AGC has joined a broad coalition in a letter urging DHS and DOL to immediately process visas up to the full number authorized by Congress last month.
