MURRIETA Council Requires E-Verify for Businesses
The southern California city of 110,000 joins the Riverside County cities of Temecula, Lake Elsinore and Menifee to require that businesses enroll in E-Verify or risk losing their business license.
The measure was approved unanimously. The council all but agreed to the ordinance during a previous meeting, but held off on a vote over some technical concerns.
The law makes the use of E-Verify mandatory to get a Murrieta business license. It calls for code enforcement officers to check out any allegations of noncompliance.
