Dependent holding H4 can work in US ?

H4 visa holders cant work in US as they do not have any valid work permits. Is there any new rule implemented this financial year for H4 visa holders. Do they work with this visa now in US or how can work permit can be arranged for their work in US.

I heard USCIS is working with or approached White House to pass that law! No updates on this as far as I am aware.
