WASHINGTON – The U.S. House of Representatives last week passed an E-Verify bill which would reauthorize the program for five years.

Reports also said that the bill provides for two General Accounting Office (GAO) studies and ensure that the Social Security Administration received appropriate compensation from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) for their involvement in the program.

The first GAO study will reportedly evaluate the erroneous tentative non-confirmations under the E-Verify program and establish the causes of the non-confirmations, the process by which they are remedied and the effect of the non-confirmations on individuals, employers and Federal agencies. The second study will evaluate the impact of the E-Verify program on small businesses.

The U.S. Senate is expected to consider the bill in September. A copy of the bill can be found at http://www.meatami.com/ht/a/GetDocumentAction/i/40671.
