I was wondering if someone could tell me, is the E3 Visa subject to TARP restrictions like H1B?

Look there is no specific laws preventing TARP recipients with E-3 visa holders but all of those companies will be very reluctant to hire/sponsor any foreign nationals given the current climate until this so called 2 year rule has passed.

Thanks. I thought that may be the case.
On that note, does any one know where to find info regarding:
1) How many E3 Visa's have been issued this year so far (i.e. has the 10,500 annual quota been filled yet?)
2) What kind of job offer one requires to be issued an E3 Visa?
In the US a lot of jobs (in finance particularly) start out as a 6-12 week contract before you get a 'permanent' job offer. Would that mean I get an E3 visa for the contract period and then apply for another E3 visa after I get a permanent offer? or would I have to get a permanent offer straight up to qualify?
