Some state regulatory boards aren't abiding by a requirement in Alabama's new immigration law that they check the legal residency of people getting licenses to do business in the state.

The state Examiners of Public Accounts issued reports saying the Alabama Home Builders Licensure Board and the Alabama Manufactured
Housing Commission have "not taken action to comply with state law that requires its licensees to be either United States citizens or lawfully present in the United States."

Officials with both boards said they held off because of legal challenges over the law and because the legislature was working on
changes to the law. Both say they plan to implement the law now.
