"Refusal to submit to any of the fingerprinting or background checks will result in being fired or refused employment.
Funneling all these fingerprints and background checks to the US government also helps build the databases supporting the US government's mass spying program.
HR 2083 passed by voice vote after a chorus of praise from several Representatives, and some moderated concern expressed by Rep. Keith Ellison in the House floor debate. Indeed, the Hill writer Pete Kasperowics identified HR 2083 as part of a package of legislation "just about everyone agrees on" that House Republican leadership had scheduled for consideration after "weeks of bitter partisan fighting about spending and the debt ceiling."
This passed the House. There was no roll-call vote, but here are the co-sponsors:
Rep. Wilson, Frederica S. [D-FL-24]
Rep. Rangel, Charles B. [D-NY-13]
Rep. Slaughter, Louise McIntosh [D-NY-25]
Rep. McCarthy, Carolyn [D-NY-4]
Rep. Holt, Rush [D-NJ-12]
Rep. Cohen, Steve [D-TN-9]
Rep. Fitzpatrick, Michael G. [R-PA-8]
Rep. Jackson Lee, Sheila [D-TX-18]
Rep. Stivers, Steve [R-OH-15]
