Need your help in understanding a little more about the usage of "that" here.
You mentioned that
It modifies legislation, and that's why THAT is wrong.
Does this mean if we use "requiring that
", then "requiring" is not modifying "legislation". If so, could you elaborate on this please?
I am quoting from bb's postsubject + verb from table below (any tense) + that + subject + verb in simple form
so if the sentence were "legislations require that new citizens have a special permit", than that
is necessary because "require
" acts as a verb. (matching the structure above)
But in the sentence Senator Lasker has proposed legislation requiring employers to retain all older workers indefinitely or show just cause for dismissal.
there is not the verb "require", there is "requiring" : a modifier, so you do not have the above mentioned structure
Hope I've explained myself well.
It is beyond a doubt that all our knowledge that begins with experience.
