Congress & Corporations Donít Want to Invest in Super Smart Americans
Advertisements [?]
Yesterday, a very popular amendment that would have funded programs for super smart kids and created college scholarships for Americans was gutted by the Conferees, yes thatís our House representatives and Senators, to the H.R. 3043: Departments of Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2008. The amendment would increase fees on H-1B employers by $3,500. About $3,000 of this fee increase would be targeted to $15,000 scholarships in math, science, engineering, and healthcare. About $500 of the fee increase would be dedicated to the Jacob Javits Gifted and Talented Program.
