House Report 108-304 - Part 2 - BASIC PILOT EXTENSION ACT OF 2003
HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
--BASIC PILOT EXTENSION ACT OF 2003
OCTOBER 28, 2003- Ordered to be printed
Mr. SENSENBRENNER, from the Committee on the Judiciary, submitted the following
[To accompany H.R. 2359]
Pursuant to clause 3(a)(2) of rule XIII of the Rules of the House of Representatives for the 108th Congress, the Committee on the Judiciary, to whom was referred the bill (H.R. 2359), to extend the basic pilot program for employment eligibility verification, and for other purposes, herein files a supplemental report on the bill for the correction of a technical error in its previous report on the bill.
House Report 108-304, part I, inadvertently contained language which was not considered by the committee. This supplemental report strikes section 4 of the committee amendment in a nature of a substitute shown in the original report (H. Rept. 108-304, part I) and inserts the following:
SEC. 4. OPERATION OF BASIC PILOT PROGRAM IN ALL STATES.
(a) IN GENERAL- Section 401(c)(1) of the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1996 (8 U.S.C. 1324a note) is amended by striking `in, at' and all that follows through the semicolon at the end and inserting `in all States;'.
(b) CONFORMING AMENDMENTS- Section 402(c) of the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1996 (8 U.S.C. 1324a note) is amended--
(1) in paragraph (2)(B), by striking `electing--' and all that follows through `(ii) the citizen' and inserting `electing the citizen'; and
(2) by striking paragraph (3) and redesignating paragraph (4) as paragraph (3).
In addition, this supplemental report makes a corresponding correction in the Changes in Existing Law section of the report as shown below.
CHANGES IN EXISTING LAW MADE BY THE BILL, AS REPORTED
