In an earlier post I discussed potential legislation adopted the federal e-verify requirements for public projects. This is now closer to happening. Both the state senate and house passed identical e-verify bills that are now going to the governor for consideration. Summarized, if you do business with the state and have over 50 employees and contracts worth more than $50,000, you need to use e-verify to confirm employee residency. No word yet from the governor's office about what he'll do. I'll update again as I hear further on it.
