Florida Govenor Rick Scott Signs Bill Requiring Welfare Applicants To Undergo Drug Testing

From a ticked off SeeBS …cbs4.com

TALLAHASSEE – Expect challenges to a bill signed by Governor Rick Scott which will require welfare applicants to undergo drug testing.

The bill also requires that those who apply for welfare must pay for the drug testing out of their own pockets. However, the cost would be reimbursed if the person passes the drug test.

Republicans said the measure was needed because if taxpayers are screened at their place of employment, so should welfare recipients. The drug testing bill was a priority for Scott.
