(123rd General Assembly)
(Amended Substitute House Bill Number 35)



AN ACT
To amend section 3707.15 of the Revised Code to require a person that employs an illegal alien with a contagious or infectious disease to pay to the municipal corporation, township, or county in which the alien is employed any expense caused by the disease unless the person has complied with the requirements of federal immigration law, to eliminate the requirement that a person that maintains a work camp pay to a municipal corporation, township, or county where the camp is located any expenses caused by contagious or infectious diseases that originate or exist in the camp, and to declare an emergency.

Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of Ohio:

SECTION 1 .  That section 3707.15 of the Revised Code be amended to read as follows:

Sec. 3707.15.  As used in this section, "alien" means an individual who is not a citizen of the United States.

Any person, partnership, or corporation that maintains a work camp that employs an alien who is not legally present in the United States and has a contagious or infectious disease contracted before or during employment shall pay to the municipal corporation, township, or county in which such camp the alien is maintained employed any expense caused by the contagious or infectious diseases which originate or exist in such camp disease unless the person demonstrates that the employment was unknowing and that the person has complied with the requirements of section 101(a) of the "Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986," 100 Stat. 3360, 8 U.S.C.A. 1324a, as amended.

SECTION 2 .  That existing section 3707.15 of the Revised Code is hereby repealed.

SECTION 3 .  This act is hereby declared to be an emergency measure necessary for the immediate preservation of the public peace, health, and safety. The reason for such necessity is that the greatest impact of this act will occur during each summer's agricultural growing season, and for 1999, that growing season is now upon us. Therefore, this act shall go into immediate effect.
