H. R. 3370 Conrad State 30 Program Permanent Reauthorization

The U.S. House of Representatives has introduced a bill to reauthorize the Conrad 30 Program. The Conrad 30 provision found in H.R. 3370 seeks to permanently reauthorize the Conrad State 30 Program, which is set to sunset on September 30, 2015.

If the Conrad State 30 Program is not reauthorized by September 30, 2015 and does sunset, it does not mean that the Conrad State 30 Program will immediately shut down. The States will still be able to support waiver applications for J-1 physicians who were admitted in, or acquired, J-1 status before September 30, 2015.  Failure to reauthorize the program affects the ability of J-1 physicians admitted in or acquiring J-1 status after September 30, 2015.
