US H-1B Visa Cap Near

From a bulletin from the LeClair Ryan Law Firm via a post on PHOSITA:

"The H-1B U.S. visa is one of the cornerstones of the US scientific and research community. The H-1B visa is a nonimmigrant classification used by an alien (i.e. non U.S. citizen) who will be employed temporarily in a specialty occupation or as a fashion model of distinguished merit and ability. Congress has tightened up the number of H-1B visas that are to be issued in the coming years and it appears that the opportunity for the 2004-05 fiscal year may be drawing to a close."
