Judiciary Committee passes E-Verify bill

First Last
email credit The House Judiciary Committee late Wednesday approved by a vote of 20-13 the Legal Workforce Act that would require employers to use a national E-Verify system to verify the legal status of employees.
Agriculture groups oppose the Legal Workforce Act, but it is supported by:
Numbers USA
U.S. Chamber of Commerce
National Restaurant Association
National Association of Homebuilders
International Franchise Association
National Federation of Independent Business
