Help Haiti Act Passes & the Interntional Adoption Simplification Act is signed by Obama!

1 12 2010

The Help Haiti Act passed the House this evening.  A Press Release regarding the passage of the bill can be found here: http://www.majorityleader.gov/content/hoyer-statement-passage-help-haiti-act.  The next step is for the legislation to be signed by President Obama.

Yesterday President Obama signed the International Adoption Simplification Act.  A White House press release regarding this can be found here: http://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2010/11/30/statement-press-secretary.

Thank you to everyone who participated in the passage of these two pieces of legislation!  Joint Council will provide more information regarding both of these changes in U.S. law as soon as it is available.  Thank you!
