The article is in regard to the 2004 H-1 cap for 2004-2005. Every year there is cap on the number of H-1 visas issued. It used to be about 195,000 visas per year during the dotcom era, but was reverted to pre-dotcom number of 65,000 H-1 visas per year (effective from 10/1/2004). This number was reached on the first day the visa opened up(10/1/2004).
the 2005 H-1 visa will start from 10/1/2005. Also, additionally the congress approved 20,000 H-1 visa for US educated students which will be processed in April 2005.
So, i wouldn't worry about it.

There will be 20,000 H-1 visas for US educated students for 2005.
Does anyone know if congress set up this program for every year
or just 2005? Do they have to renew it every year?
