The Alabama State Senate has delayed a planned vote to amend the State's immigration law known as HB 56.  A vote was planned for this week.  Apparently the sponsors of the Bill are divided over provisions that deal with business transactions.  At issue are provision that provide civil penalties to business owners that knowingly hire undocumented immigrants.

As the law currently stands there are automatic statutory penalties, which include the suspension of business licenses and the imposition of probationary periods.

I'll keep you posted as soon as more information becomes available.
