New law requires construction industry employers to use E-Verify system

A new law I authored, known as the Construction Industry Employee Verification Act, recently became law and will take effect next year.

This law will require employers in the construction industry to use the federal E-Verify system to ensure their new hires do not include individuals not authorized to work in the United States.

Unfortunately, there are many unscrupulous employers who hire individuals not authorized to work in the U.S. for their construction teams.

A message to candidates, readers

As we approach the Nov. 5 Municipal Election, the Parkland Press and the Northwestern Press, in the interest of fairness, will halt the publication of columns by local government officials and letters to the editor submitted by those running for office.

The last week for publication of columns by local government officials running for office was the Oct. 3 edition.

We will, of course, continue to cover the local races, in news stories generated by our own reporters.

Halloween

It’s Halloween, time to be scary or corny

All costumed up, also acting the real phony

Going trick or treating around, door-to-door

Receiving tons of candy, apples and lots more

Please do not eat everything in an hour

Or your stomach will turn overly sour

Now for the cause of why the reason

Get chocolate bunnies, jelly beans at Easter season
