Important clause in immigration reform bill 2013

Whenever the bill is passed, according to this document,

Spouses of H-1B workers would be allowed to work in the U.S. if their home country allows spouses of U.S. workers in that country to work.

Do you know if this is the case with India and if people on H4 will be able to make use of this?

If you read the bill fully, it says

19 ‘‘(ii) In the case of an alien spouse admitted under
20 section 101(a)(15)(H)(i), who is accompanying or fol
21 lowing to join a principal alien admitted under such sec
22 tion, the Secretary of Homeland Security shall—
23 ‘‘(I) authorize the alien spouse to engage in em
24 ployment in the United States only if such spouse is
25 a national of a foreign country that permits recip
26 rocal employment; and

India does not provide employment for dependants coming under (E) employment visa and you know very well that this will not change anytime soon or even late…

The law on this issue will certainly change quickly in India. This has a lot of tax dollars and repatriable income flow for Indian govt…Politicians understand the value of money universally, and the tech lobby in India will lobby for it as soon as the bill passes in house of reps now. Passed today in congress…
