Sen. Hill Votes Against SB 40 Immigration Reform

Please see the following statement from Sen. Judson Hill (R-Marietta) regarding Senate Bill 40, immigration reform.

“I oppose Senate Bill 40 because it begins to dismantle the strong provisions of existing state law. Georgians need jobs but Senate Bill 40 weakens the prohibitions in Georgia law that restrict hiring unlawful public-projects workers with taxpayer moneys. Under Section 3 of Senate Bill 40, companies that do not use e-verify are not penalized. In fact, it will now be easier to avoid compliance. Furthermore, passage of SB 40 has weakened Georgia law and allows contractors to look the other way on violations of the law.”

– Sen. Judson Hill (R-Marietta)
