Congress voted today to extend the EB-5 program without any changes for one week, until next Friday, May 5, as part of a general continuing resolution that funds the entire U.S. government for the same length of time. Congress did this to give itself more time to try to resolve some big ticket items like additional funding for the military and health care reform. The additional week also gives members of Congress time to try to finalize an EB-5 reform package. We will have to wait to see what happens at the end of next week, both on the general funding bill and on EB-5 reform.
