Current Bill Summary

SB 988 - This act bars employers from employing or subcontracting with any illegal alien on any publicly funded project. If an employer employs an illegal alien for a public project, the employer shall be fined ten dollars per individual per day during which the illegal alien was employed, and the employer shall not be permitted to bid on any publicly funded project for ten years from the violation.

Under current law, during a period of excessive unemployment in the state, only Missouri laborers or laborers from nonrestrictive states may be employed for public projects. This act provides a penalty of ten dollars per day for each nonqualifying laborer employed during such periods to be imposed on employers who engage in such a practice.

This act is substantially similar to SB 334 (2005).
