Draft Comment for OPT Students Awaiting STEM Extension Rule

The proposed OPT STEM rule has been published in the Federal Register, which means that the 30 day comment period has officially begun. The public has until November 18th to submit written comments for or against the proposal. If you are needing a STEM extension, now is the time to take action and make your voice heard! It is important that submitted comments be well-crafted, and not just random statements that you are for the proposal. For ideas of what not to do, you can see comments already submitted at: http://www.regulations.gov/#!docketDetail;D=ICEB-2015-0002. There are over 2,000 comments submitted already, the majority of them are from students, and unfortunately, they don’t do much to add to the discussion.  The purpose of comments is to enhance the quality of law and ensure that proposed regulations meet the needs of the people being regulated. Simple statements supporting the rule are not helpful.
