Legislators seeking to discourage the hiring of illegal immigrants are now one step closer to reaching Florida’s employment law. The state senate’s judiciary committee approved a bill on Monday requiring companies to use the electronic verification program for new hires. The bill must go through two more committees before reaching the senate floor.
In 2020, 19 Florida counties approved 20 sales and property tax increases worth $400 million. Two of these measures passed in Alachua and Marion Counties.
