Senate Roll Call 137 on
2013 House Bill 4118: Require drug testing of welfare applicants

To require a one-year pilot program in at least three counties that would require drug testing of state welfare benefit recipients and applicants if an "empirical screening tool" indicates a reasonable suspicion of drug use. Benefits would be halted for six months if a person tests positive or refuses to take the test, with an exception for medical marijuana. If a welfare recipient who is a parent tests positive, the child would still be eligible for assistance, and a "protective payee" would be designated to receive the parent's welfare money. The bill appropriates $500,000 for the pilot program.
