Florida Chamber Staff Analysis: Proposal 29
By: Florida Chamber of Commerce
Commissioner Proposal 29 was introduced by Commissioner Rich Newsome for consideration by the full Constitution Revision Commission. This proposal creates a new section of Article X of the Florida Constitution to require employers to use the federal Employment Authorization Program, also known as E-Verify, or face significant penalties. The proposal also gives sweeping, and possibly unconstitutional, powers to the Department of Business and Professional Regulation to conduct unannounced inspections and interviews of all employees and managers.
