Congress Approves Three-Year E-Verify Extension

On September 13, the House of Representatives approved a three-year extension for the federal government’s E-Verify program, which uses records from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Social Security Administration (SSA) to electronically verify the employment eligibility of newly hired workers.

The program, which was originally due to expire at the end of this month, will now be extended until September 2015 after unanimous approval by the Senate and a near-unanimous vote in the House of Representatives. The measure, which President Obama is expected to sign into law, also extends the federal government’s visa programs for religious workers, investors and cultural exchange participants.
