“The U.S. federal government expects the number of employers using its electronic verification system for new job applicants to more than double this year to 100,000 and to climb to 300,000 by 2009.

To help support and promote that increased usage, the Department of Homeland Security which oversees the system, is seeking to increase funding for E-Verify by $40 million, up to $100 million for fiscal 2009.” (Information Week)
