HB 318; MC - Protect North Carolina Workers Act

Requires companies receiving state government contract work to participate in the E-verify program in many cases. E-Verify is a program used to verify the legal status of workers. Prohibits consulate documents (other than legal passports) to be an acceptable form of citizen identification. Prohibits the adoption of sanctuary city policies. Also prohibits the state Department of Health and Human Services from seeking a waiver for the work requirement of childless, able-bodied adults to receive food stamps. Civitas believes the conservative position is to ensure people residing in NC have achieved proper residential status. The conservative vote is yes.
