    State Rep. Bobby Reese (R-Sugar Hill) on Tuesday filed the Georgia Employer and Worker Protection of Act of 2010, also known as House Bill 1259. If passed, the bill would require all Georgia businesses to sign an affidavit agreeing to participate in the federal citizenship verification program E-Verify in order to obtain a business license or occupational tax certificate. Currently, only public entities such as municipalities and state agencies are required to participate in E-Verify per 2006's Senate Bill 529.

    Rep. Don Parsons (R-Marietta) is one of the five co-signers of HB 1259. Another is Rep. Rick Austin (R-Demorest), who presented a bill two weeks ago that proposes severe consequences for public entities that knowingly employ illegal workers. In Austin's bill, a local government who knowingly employs someone who is in the country illegally would lose its qualifying local government funds for a year. This includes all state funding and matching. If a state agency knowingly employs illegal workers, it would lose 10 percent of the state-funded budget the next year.

    The bill, SB 385, passed 37-11.
