In the 2009-2010 legislative session, Vance served on these committees:
Workers comp. and immigration
Vance sponsored a bill that would prohibit illegal immigrants from being able to college workers' compensation. He told the state Judiciary committee that the idea for House Bill 71 comes from his experience with the workers’ compensation issue when he was on the Legislature’s Economic Interim Advisory Committee that examined the costs of the program.
“We are the best of something apparently because we have the highest workers’ compensation rates in the country,” he said.
Several lawyers spoke up to say this bill would bring lawsuits.
Immigration attorney Shahid Haque-Hausrath warned lawmakers the bill would bring unintended consequences. Employers could hire more undocumented workers in order to beat workers’ compensation costs.
“This bill would do nothing to deter illegal immigration,” he said.
Haque-Hausrath added that employees not covered by worker’s compensation would simply file a grievance in court.
“There is simply no need for this bill,” he said.
On November 2, 2010 Vance won election to the Montana House of Representatives. He did not have any opposition in the June 8 primary. Jim Elder ran for the seat on the Democratic ticket. The general election took place on November 2, 2010.
