Kansas House to Vote on Dislodging Immigration Bill
03/30/2012

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - Kansas House members face a decision on
debating proposals for cracking down on illegal immigration.
     The House was set to vote Friday on a request from Rep.
Charlotte O'Hara, an Overland Park Republican, to remove an
immigration bill from committee and debate it. She needed support
from 70 of the House's 125 members.
     The bill would require companies holding contracts with state or
local government agencies worth more than $5,000 to use the federal
E-Verify database to determine whether new employees are in the
U.S. legally.
     A proposal to require state agencies - but not private companies
- to use E-Verify cleared committee Thursday, but its future is
uncertain.
     House GOP leaders have said they don't want to debate
immigration this year because majority Republicans are split on the
issue.
