SB 529: Final version (April 17, 2006) provides that all public employers and their contractors and subcontractors must register and participate in the "federal work authorization program" (i.e., the Basic Pilot Program) to verify the status of newly hired employees. "Public employer" means every department, agency, or instrumentality of the state or a political subdivision of the state. The bill applies only to physical performance of services in the state.

This law has three different effective dates: (1) July 1, 2007, for every public employer and contractor, including every subcontractor, who has 500 or more employees; (2) July 1, 2008, for 100 or more employees; and (3) July 1, 2009, for 99 or fewer employees.
