Old Tucson is more than a theme park or attraction. It’s a movie studio and theme park – not dissimilar to Universal Studios in Los Angeles, although on a smaller scale. But it’s also living history in the heart of Arizona. According to Old Tucson’s director of marking and communications, Mary Davis, it was originally built as an 1800s-era town by Columbia Pictures in 1939 as a set for the movie Arizona. The set thrived with filmmakers in the 40s and 50s, languished in the 60s until film preservationist Bob Shelton came ......[read more]

On Thursday, July 19, the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Homeland Security passed its Fiscal 2019 appropriations bill. The measure does not currently include any H-2B cap relief. We are hopeful that an H-2B returning worker exemption will be added during the full committee markup on the bill on Wednesday. Reps. Harris (R-MD), Cuellar (D-TX) and others will offer the amendment. In order for an H-2B fix to be added to the bill, we need you to do the following TODAY:

  • Call your Representative and ask him or her to sign onto the letter that Reps. Bergman (R-MI) and Keating (D-MA) will soon circulate to Appropriations Committee leaders asking that they include an H-2B returning worker exemption in the bill. We will share a copy of that letter as soon as it is available, but since there will be a quick turnaround time for signatures, it is helpful to begin outreach to you Representatives now.

  • If and only if your Representative is on the Appropriations Committee, please call and ask him or her to support the Harris-Cuellar H-2B returning worker amendment to the Fiscal 2019 Homeland Security appropriations bill during the committee markup next week. Calls from non-constituents are not helpful. If you are not sure who your Representative is, you can look him or her up at www.house.gov. A list of committee members is below.

  • You can reach your Representative through the Capitol switchboard at 202-225-3121. Once connected to the office, ask to speak to the person who handles H-2B issues.

As reported by the Seasonal Employment Alliance (SEA), House Leadership remains committed to bringing an H-2B fix to the floor before the August recess. The bill is likely to contain a Returning Worker Exemption with a two-year look back.

During a recent Washington DC Fly In organized by the SEA, members from the amusement industry and other industries met with members of congress asking for their support.  "Our efforts the last year are paying off as we are getting closer to a substantial increase in the H-2B cap", as reported by Gray Delaney of the SEA.  

Please continue to contact your members of congress and urge them for their support of the H2B Visa Program and what it means for your business.
