Changes to E-Verify through the Paperwork Reduction Act form change process
80 Federal Register 32408 (June 8, 2015)
 
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce (Chamber) is the world’s largest business federation. The Chamber represents the interests of more than three million businesses and organizations of every size, sector, and region, as well as state and local chambers and industry associations, and is dedicated to promoting, protecting, and defending America’s free enterprise system. We are writing in response to the published Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) notice where U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) proposes an expansion of E-Verify. Because the proposed expanded collection of information is not authorized by the controlling statute, is in conflict with existing Federal Acquisition Regulation provisions promulgated through notice and comment rulemaking, creates several critical operational issues for E-Verify users that have not been considered by the agency, and is not accompanied by appropriate and necessary information and documents for the public to fully assess the proposed expanded information collection, the Chamber writes to ask that the proposed information collection expansion be abandoned.
