House Bill 36 was on the agenda for the Government Committee on May 19th, 2011. This bill would “require counties, municipalities, entities who contract with a government agency in this state, and their subcontractors to use the Federal E-Verify program”. As shown in the following videos, the partisan divide in evident in this committee. Since this legislation would require contractors to follow the same guidelines currently in place for all new state employees, the arguments against it are made purely for political pandering.
I want to extend my thanks to representatives H. Warren, G. Cleveland and D. Folwell (all Republicans) for sponsoring this legislation. The measure barely passed the approval of this committee and it is now headed to the infamous Judiciary Subcommittee A. Let’s hope that this legislation will be released for a floor vote on its second and third reading.
This video was also made from this hearing’s proceedings. Guilford County should hold their heads low for this representative’s election:
Any politician who puts the welfare of illegal aliens above their constituents and the state of North Carolina should be exposed for this blatant disregard of the public trust and our fiscal solvency. What would Sam Adams have done?
