SALEM -- Lawmakers are set to crack down on businesses that hire illegal workers, don't pay taxes, or otherwise make it harder for law-abiding employers to compete.

The Senate, in a marathon afternoon session on Monday, approved House Bill 2815, which requires the departments of justice, revenue, employment, and other agencies to work together to track businesses that pay employees in cash.

Way to go, Oregon.

I'm quite surprised that this occurred because of how liberal that state is.

California is at the 'tipping point' IMHO in the war against illegal immigration courtesy of its crashing economy-----------but, is not yet aware of it just yet.

Wow. I'm surprised. Although they do have a very high unemployment rate just like adjacent California. I would think they are getting some pressure from citizens to make sure jobs are going to citizens first. I'm an Oregonian by birth. It's about time.
