We've focused our efforts on increasing the number of high-skilled visas, known as H1-B visas, and the creation of High Skilled Immigration Zones, which would allocate a block of visas to geographic areas experiencing high unemployment.

GCP supports modifications to energy mandates

The Greater Cleveland Partnership (GCP) formally supports Substitute Senate Bill 58 (SB58), a legislative proposal aimed at reforming Ohio’s energy efficiency and alternative energy mandates.

GCP, others press for immigration reform

In keeping with the Greater Cleveland Partnership’s position on immigration reform, last week the GCP Advocacy Team traveled to Washington, D.C. with the U.S. Chamber and chamber partners in the Great Lakes region to advocate for immigration reform.

Over 600 travelers from industry, business, agriculture, the religious community, and grassroots organizations participated in the event.  Meetings focused on the House of Representatives, which has taken a piecemeal approach to reform by introducing multiple pieces of legislation covering separate policy items in each.
