Week 5

Week five in Washington was a blast. I have learned a lot this week as I continue to work on my second memo assignment. Currently I am working on a bill that was just introduced last week in the House Judiciary Committee. The name of this bill is the “Legal Work Force Act” (H.R. 2164). If this bill is passed, it would require all U.S employers to e-verify all employees. This would have a profound impact on the agricultural sector. Although there is a sliding timeline for compliance which would give the agricultural sector 36 months to comply, this still might not be enough time for them to comply without adversely affecting the industry. I am excited to continue to research the bill, along with following its progress through committee.

This week I also went out and played a little kick ball. One of my fraternity brothers lives and works in DC and is a member of a recreational kick ball team. On Wednesday, I finally went out and played. I had a blast. The coolest part about the whole experience was that we were playing on the grass mall right next to the Washington Monument. It was so cool playing with a backdrop of the WWII and Lincoln Memorials. Even though we lost the game, we still went to McFadens to celebrate, where they had awesome $5 cheese burgers.
