(IIRIRA); Section 401(b) of the Illegal Immigration Reform and
Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1996 (IIRIRA); Public Law. 104-208,
dated September 30, 1996, provided for the establishment of a Basic
Pilot Program to last 4 years. The Basic Pilot Program's operation
has been repeatedly extended by Congress; See Basic Pilot Extension
Act, Public Law 107-128 (2002); Basic Pilot Program Extension and
Expansion Act, Public Law 108-156 (2003); Consolidated Security,
Disaster Assistance, and Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2009,
Public Law 110-329 (2008). DHS renamed the Basic Pilot "E-Verify"

the Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification, against existing
information contained in the Verification Information System (VIS),
a composite information system that checks against Social Security
Administration (SSA), Department of Homeland Security and the U.S.
Department of State.
There are no changes to the

E-Verify screens and MOUs. There is no change to the number of

data and a better understanding of the incidents of occurrence. The
result is a better estimation of the time the tasks require. There
are no changes to the information collection or the process to
complete the TNC. There is a decrease in the total estimated cost
burden to E-Verify users to correct a rounding issue in the
estimate. There is no program change that resulted in the cost
