The article is misleading. Those aren’t the major parts of SEA 590. The major parts are detailed in the following article and will be contested by the AG:

It’s unknown how Barker’s ruling will affect a civil lawsuit brought against state and region officials by East Chicago-based Hispanic cultural organization Union Benefica Mexicana. The organization is challenging some provisions of Senate Enrolled Act 590, primarily on the basis of employment, as unconstitutional and in violation of civil liberties.

As it relates to the Union Benefica Mexicana complaint, the law bans illegal immigrants from receiving state welfare benefits, requires businesses to reimburse Indiana for unemployment payments to illegal workers, mandates state contractors verify the immigration status of their employees and prohibits Indiana residents, in most circumstances, from transporting groups of illegal immigrants.

Zoeller’s release said the attorney general’s office continues to defend the state immigration statue against the separate legal challenge brought by Union Benefica Mexicana.

Thanks for the heads up.
Gee, who would ever think a Democrat “mainstream” newsroom like the LA Times would be misleading?
