Immigrant groups call for veto of E-Verify bill

Following the passage of a controversial bill in the Pennsylvania Senate, immigrant groups are urging Gov. Tom Wolf to veto the legislation, which would prohibit unauthorized workers from being employed in construction trades.

 

The bill, known as the Construction Industry Employee Verification Act, would require construction industry employers to verify whether a prospective employee is eligible to work in the U.S. and prohibit construction companies from employing undocumented and unauthorized workers.

Work zone speed cameras a step closer after Senate passes bill

After years of working to get Senate Bill 172 passed, Senators David Argall (R-Schuylkill) and Judy Schwank (D-Berks) are a step closer following its final passage in the Senate today, and now need House approval and the governor's signature to see it enacted. 

The bill would establish a five-year pilot program for using speed cameras in active work zones on interstate highways and the Pennsylvania Turnpike.
