This ruling is based on a statutory authority and the new numerical limit will expire on September 30, 2018. Those who can petition for the additional visas are American businesses that have a likelihood of experiencing severe finan - cial loss if they are unable to employ the H-2B workers they request on their petition. Eligible petitioners can file Form I-129 for the H-2B visas and must also meet other requirements, un - der the temporary increase, no later than September 30, 2018. Over two nights, landscaping equipment was taken from barns and businesses in the town of Shelton, S.C. The stolen items were: string trimmers, a chainsaw, a riding lawn mower, a backpack blower and a white, gas-powered golf cart. Michael Buckner, a 55-year-old local resident, was charged with receiving stolen goods. I n f o r m a t i o n R e q u e s t # 1 5 2
