Senate Votes Down E-verify Bill

Wednesday, June 02, 2010

 

The Rhode Island Senate President is denying that she blocked a bill that would require 16,000 employers in the state to use the federal E-verify system to confirm their workers are legal immigrants, according to 630 WPRO, a GoLocalProv media partner.

Teresa Paiva-Weed told WPRO that she had the bill tabled as a procedural matter. The bill’s sponsor Senator Marc Cote, a Woonsocket Democrat, has accused Paiva-Weed of squashing the legislation.

RI Taxpayer

Very misleading headline. The senate did no such thing.
This is an example of RI politics at it's worse.

What's so wrong with discussion? Ms. Piva-Weed does not represent me in the least.

Agree w/ RI Taxpayer on the headline- Where was this "Senate Vote"?
Ms. Paiva-Weed still has not responded to my request this morning for an answer why there was no vote..
Weak, spineless "leadership".. Yet, Consistent.
