Page 421, beginning of line 47, insert “a.”
Page 421, after line 49, insert:
“b.  All agencies of the Commonwealth and localities shall be enrolled in the E-Verify program by December 1, 2010, and on and after December 1, 2010, shall use the E-Verify program for each newly hired employee who is to perform work within the Commonwealth."

(This amendment requires state agencies and localities to enroll in the E-Verify system and use that system when hiring new employees. E-Verify is available at no cost to the user and is available on-line. The system compares an employee's I-9 information with over 444 million records in the Social Security Administration databases and more than 60 million records maintained by the Department of Homeland Security immigration databases to determine employment eligibility.)
