    Ga. House votes crackdown on illegal workers

    Billboards legislation squeezes through Ga. House

    Atlanta Business Chronicle - by Dave Williams, Staff Writer
    Date: Thursday, March 3, 2011, 3:42pm EST

    All but the smallest businesses in Georgia would have to keep illegal immigrants off of their payrolls under Republican-backed legislation that passed the state House of Representatives Thursday.

    The bill, which passed 113-56 virtually along party lines, would require companies with five or more employees to enroll in a Web-based federal verification system to check on the immigration status of new hires.

    The General Assembly enacted an E-Verify enrollment mandate in 2006. But that law only applies to businesses seeking government contracts.

    Thank you jamesw62 for keeping the information current and accessible for us. I get lost at times searching for things and trying to keep up with everything.

    Hebrews 11:1, it is written, "For faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen."
    Jeremiah 29:11 - It is written, "For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
