Kansas Immigration Measure Rejected in Budget Talks
05/14/2012

  TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - A proposal to require government contractors
in Kansas to use the federal E-Verify database to ensure employees
aren't illegal immigrants won't survive legislative negotiations
over the state budget.
     House and Senate negotiators have concluded they don't want to
include a major policy change in the spending plan for the fiscal
year beginning July 1.
     The proposal would require companies having contracts with the
state worth more than $50,000 to submit a notarized statement
saying they use E-Verify to check the status of new employees.
     During a debate last week, Rep. Anthony Brown, a Eudora
Republican, persuaded House members to add the proposal to the
chamber's proposed budget, imposing the policy for only a year.
Senators did not consider the idea before approving their version
of the budget.
