EB-5 Extension thru 12/8 Part of Congress/White House Spending Deal
Yesterday, Congress reached a deal with the White House that, once passed at some point this September, would extend existing funding levels and other program authorizations (such as EB-5) included on the last “continuing resolution” (“CR”) through 12/8/17.
The EB-5 authorization comes in Section 105 text of the deal released yesterday which:
Continues all authorities, requirements, and limitations from 2017 appropriations Acts through the date in section 106. Allows for valid obligations and expenditures during the period of the Continuing Resolution (CR).
Section 106 verifies the date:
Continues appropriations through December 8, 2017, or the enactment of the pertinent appropriations Act.
