“We are grateful Gov. Bentley has signed HB 658," BCA President and CEO William J. Canary said Friday. "The intent of the immigration law was never to make it difficult for businesses to comply and burden businesses with unnecessary red tape. These changes, while not perfect, are a much-needed step in the right direction and will allow businesses to clearly comply with both federal and state immigration law. We actively worked for passage of HB 658 in its final form, urging our member companies to voice support for these necessary changes in the law."
