"Early on, it became clear there would be unprecedented bipartisan support for illegal immigration legislation this year, particularly for legislation that creates tough penalties for those who knowingly hire illegal immigrants.

"Senate Bill 345, which contains what used to be Senate Bill 335, has seen a lot of changes over the past few weeks. Most of the changes have served only to water down the proposal. I would like to see the language revised in conference committee to create a stronger law that will actually help to subdue the influx of illegal immigrant workers into our state."
