SA 3705. Mr. GREGG submitted an amendment intended to be proposed by him to the bill H.R. 2419, to provide for the continuation of agricultural programs through fiscal year 2012, and for other purposes; which was ordered to lie on the table; as follows:

At the appropriate place, insert the following:
(a) Prohibition.--No type of price support, loan, or payment made available under title I of the Food and Energy Security Act of 2007 (or an amendment made by that title), the Commodity Credit Charter Act (15 U.S.C. 714 et seq.), or any other Act may be made available to a producer for a fiscal year on the basis of the operations of a farm located in a sanctuary city unless the producer submits a certification described in subsection (c) for such fiscal year.
(b) Sanctuary City Defined.--In this section, the term ``sanctuary city'' means a subdivision of a State that prohibits the employees of such subdivision, including law enforcement officers, from seeking information from an individual regarding the individual's immigration status or providing such information to an appropriate employee of an agency or department of the United States.
(c) Certification.--A certification described in this subsection is a certification submitted to the Secretary of Agriculture by a producer for a fiscal year that the operations described in subsection (a) have not employed within the past 12 months, or have utilized a contractor or subcontractor that has employed within the past 12 months, an alien who was unlawfully present in the United States at the time such alien was hired.
