By Meymo Lyons

A new Frederick County regulation requires contractors to certify that they or their subcontractors did not knowingly employ illegal immigrants. Under the new purchasing regulation approved Tuesday by county commissioners, the county could terminate the contracts of violators.

Frederick County Commissioner John L. Thompson Jr. says commissioners are also considering a further requirement that all contractors and vendors use the federal e-verify system to check the status of employees.

The e-verify proposal is scheduled to be discussed in mid-February.
