On February 26, 2008, a bill (S1312) was introduced that would impose penalties on employers who knowingly or intentionally employ unauthorized aliens.  For the first violation, a court would order the employer to terminate such employment, be subject to a several year probationary period during which the employer shall submit reports for each new hire, and a potential suspension of any business license for a period of ten business days or more.  For any second violation, a court would order the permanent revocation of any and all of the employer’s business licenses issued by the State.
