    Mar 19, 2015 | Cape Cod Times

    The H-2B visa application process is up and running again, although employers remain concerned about how long it will take the two federal agencies responsible for the program to catch up after a two-week shutdown.

  8. Battenfeld: Ousted rep's spend spreeRead the original story

    Mar 18, 2015 | Boston Herald

John Tierney may have been dumped by voters, but he used his lame-duck time to full advantage, handing out taxpayer-funded bonuses to staffers, treating himself and supporters to goodbye bashes and hiring shredders and junk removal teams to do his grunt work, records show. Tierney lost to now U.S. Rep. Seth Moulton last September, but that humiliating setback left him with a lot of playing-around money - a campaign war chest of more than $700,000 and a taxpayer-funded office budget of more than $300,000.

    A week after suspending the visa review process and leaving many Cape and Islands employers to wonder if the foreign workers they rely on would get here in time for the busy tourist season, the Department of Labor filed a motion to temporarily stay an order issued on March 4 by a federal district court judge in Florida. The ruling in the Perez vs. Perez case vacated Labor's 2008 H-2B visa regulations, and the department interpreted that to mean it could no longer carry out key functions in the H-2B visa approval process, including certifying that employers pay foreign workers a prevailing wage and do not compromise the earnings of U.S. workers.

William Keating, D-Mass., made no secret of his reaction to the letter 47 GOP senators addressed to Iran earlier this month in an apparent attempt to undermine President Barack Obama's negotiations over a proposed nuclear nonproliferation deal with the country. Keating said the letter, in which the Republican senators sought to inform Iranian leaders that "anything not approved by Congress is a mere executive agreement" that could be wiped away in the future, worked against U.S. interests.
