Senator Proposes E-Verify Law

Wednesday, March 09, 2011

 

A state senator has submitted a bill that would restore former Governor Donald L. Carcieri’s 2008 executive order on E-Verify.

The “Illegal Immigration Control Order,” as the bill is called, would require state departments and businesses doing work for the departments to use the E-Verify program to verify employment eligibility of new hires.

“Making E-Verify part of our General Laws will ensure that Rhode Island is complying with federal employment eligibility standards, and that contractors employed by the state meet the requirements to hold a job legally in the United States,” said Senator Francis Maher (R-District 34), the main sponsor.
