DES MOINES — A bill designed to deter businesses from hiring illegal immigrants appears dead after a House panel opted not to vote on the proposal.
Members of a House labor subcommittee decided to take no action Monday on the bill, which established punishments for businesses that knowingly hire illegal immigrants. The measure had been sponsored by 27 Republican lawmakers.
