On Dec. 16, Congressional leaders negotiated and debuted a $1.37 trillion spending package to fund the operational needs of the country and extend vital programs such as EB-5.

The massive spending package is in two packages with Division 1-Extensions, Title 1, Immigration Extensions calling for the EB-5 extension:

17 SEC. 104. Section 610(b) of the Departments of

18 Commerce, Justice, and State, the Judiciary, and Related

19 Agencies Appropriations Act, 1993 (8 U.S.C. 1153 note)

20 shall be applied by substituting ‘‘September 30, 2020’’ for

21 ‘‘September 30, 2015’’.

The House plans to consider the packages this week and send to the Senate with time to prevent a government shutdown at midnight on Dec. 20.
