US lawmakers consider alternative to H-1B visa lottery

The proposed legislation, by Republican House Representative for California, Darrell Issa, and Democratic House Representative for California, Zoe Lofgren, seeks to largely end the H-1B visa lottery system in favour of \'salary offers\' instead, putting employers who offer generous salary packages at the front of the queue for hiring foreign workers.\r\n\r\nAccording to the report published by Computer World, there have been discussions about moving forward with the proposed bill, with Issa indicating his support for a joint effort. However, this falls short of Issa giving his full backing for the proposed H-1B changes.
