Times-News: Bill vetoed by McCrory could have helped local agricultural community

From the Times-News

Story by Mark Schulman

Gov. Pat McCrory vetoed a bill Thursday that would have helped the agricultural community hire seasonal workers, said Mark Williams, executive director of Agribusiness Henderson County.

Under current law, E-Verify screening to determine a worker’s immigration status is required after 90 days of employment. The bill that McCrory vetoed would have extended the exemption to nine months.

    Hopefully, voters will veto the ability of the current laughing joke of a governor to extend his time in office beyond one term. I know I’ll do what I can to that end.
