Governor Perry signed an executive order: E-Verify use as a condition of all State contracts for Services:
 

Governor Perry Issues Executive Order Requiring State Agencies to Utilize the E-Verify System As a Condition of All State Contracts For Services 

On December 3, 2014, Governor Perry issued an Executive Order requiring all state agencies "under the direction of the governor to include, as a condition of all state contracts for services, a requirement that contractors utilize the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's E-Verify system to determine the eligibility of:

1.      All persons employed during the contract term to perform duties within Texas; and
2.      All persons (including subcontractors) assigned by the contractor to perform work pursuant to the contract.

Agencies not under the direction of the governor are encouraged to verify the employment eligibility of their current and prospective employees utilizing the E-Verify system and require contractors to utilize the E-Verify system to verify the employment eligibility of their employees and subcontractors."

The Executive Order took effect immediately.


The agencies affected by this Executive Order include state universities. Click here  to read the Executive Order.
