CEA Applauds Visa Act
The Consumer Electronics Association this week applauded the introduction of the Supplying Knowledge-Based Immigrants and Lifting Levels of STEM Visas Act, known as the SKILLS Visa Act.
The bill was introduced by Congressman and former CEA Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.)
"CEA supports the SKILLS Visa Act as it recognizes that immigration policy must be strategic to contribute to our national growth and innovation," president and CEO Gary Shapiro said as part of the announcement. "The legislation includes many long-overdue policy reforms necessary to expand the U.S. economy, advance innovation and allow for the development of small, entrepreneurial companies in the United States."
