Labour market access

On May 12, 2015 the governor of Maryland signed into law a bill (H1160) that may ease the employment of non-citizens in that state’s horse-racing industry. Existing law had provided that “at least 85% of the individuals employed each day by a licensee [of the State Racing Commission] shall be citizens of the United States who have maintained a permanent place of residence in the State for at least the 2 years immediately before being employed.” The bill repealed this requirement.
