Lawmakers Address Immigration
Boise--The Senate State Affairs Committe held legislation this past week that that would make Idaho employers use the national E-Verify system. Senator Michael Jorgenson sponsored the legislation but his bill went down in committee 2-7.

Two other bills, Senate Bill 1271 which enhances penalties for knowingly hiring legal workers, as well as using false indentification to obtain employment, did pass and was sent to the amending order.
