E-Verify May Become Law for Texas State Contractors

Federal contractors are already required to use the growing E-Verify program and this week, a bill has been filed in Texas that would require the same of all state contractors. 

Texas State Senator Charles Schertner (R-Georgetown) filed Senate Bill 254 on November 28, 2016 that if passed, would require all state contractors and sub-contractors in Texas to participate in the federal E-Verify program. 

The program is an electronic employee verification system that already had the support of Texas governor Rick Perry but may now become law. While many employers already participate the law would require all employers with a state contract to sign up and participate in E-Verify.
