Another bill would allow for illegal immigrants to be charged with a crime if they’re caught driving a motor vehicle. They would forfeit the vehicle, spend 30 days in jail and have to pay for their jail time, if convicted.

Among other provisions in the proposed laws are requirements that the state’s attorney general notify all businesses that aren’t using the federal E-verify system to comply with the law or have their business license suspended.

In addition, the new law would set bail limits for illegal residents who committed serious felonies and institute prohibitions against them collecting punitive damages awarded in courts.
