Carnival & Fair News
The 12th anniversary party for California Carnival Company on July 1st proved to be a trifecta. Reaching the dozen year mark was just one reason to party. The other two reasons were the final payment to Midway of Fun was made, and the launch of a new company, American Doniker, a portable sanitation company.To say that the 2018 fair season has been one of milestones for Kevin Tate, President of California Carnival Company is an understatement. Reports of many fairs being mired in wet, rainy weekends and attendance doldrums may be widespread in ......[read more]

On Thursday, July 19, the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Homeland Security passed its Fiscal 2019 appropriations bill. The measure does not currently include any H-2B cap relief. We are hopeful that an H-2B returning worker exemption will be added during the full committee markup on the bill on Wednesday. Reps. Harris (R-MD), Cuellar (D-TX) and others will offer the amendment. In order for an H-2B fix to be added to the bill, we need you to do the following TODAY:

  • Call your Representative and ask him or her to sign onto the letter that Reps. Bergman (R-MI) and Keating (D-MA) will soon circulate to Appropriations Committee leaders asking that they include an H-2B returning worker exemption in the bill. We will share a copy of that letter as soon as it is available, but since there will be a quick turnaround time for signatures, it is helpful to begin outreach to you Representatives now.

  • If and only if your Representative is on the Appropriations Committee, please call and ask him or her to support the Harris-Cuellar H-2B returning worker amendment to the Fiscal 2019 Homeland Security appropriations bill during the committee markup next week. Calls from non-constituents are not helpful. If you are not sure who your Representative is, you can look him or her up at A list of committee members is below.

  • You can reach your Representative through the Capitol switchboard at 202-225-3121. Once connected to the office, ask to speak to the person who handles H-2B issues.

As reported by the Seasonal Employment Alliance (SEA), House Leadership remains committed to bringing an H-2B fix to the floor before the August recess. The bill is likely to contain a Returning Worker Exemption with a two-year look back.

During a recent Washington DC Fly In organized by the SEA, members from the amusement industry and other industries met with members of congress asking for their support.  "Our efforts the last year are paying off as we are getting closer to a substantial increase in the H-2B cap", as reported by Gray Delaney of the SEA.  

Please continue to contact your members of congress and urge them for their support of the H2B Visa Program and what it means for your business.
