NASHVILLE (AP) - Proposals to allow employers to require English be spoken at work and to make it a crime for illegal immigrants to use false identification to gain employment are on their way for full Senate votes.

The Senate Commerce Committee on Tuesday unanimously advanced the measures sponsored by Sen. Jack Johnson, a Brentwood Republican.

The language restriction would only apply while workers were on the clock and prospective employees would have to be informed about the rule before they were hired.

The other proposals would make it a misdemeanor to manufacture or use false federal identification for the purposes of illegal immigrants to gain employment.
