Rep. Sherman Mack Pushes Drug Testing For Welfare Recipients
Rep. Sherman Mack, sponsor of House Bill 380 appeared on Mornings With Ken & Bernie today to discuss the bill. Mack said the bill will reduce aid payments to those who are addicted to drugs or alcohol and help them recover. A minority in the legislature say the bill discriminates against welfare recipients but Mack says,
"State workers even school teachers have to take drug tests so I don't understand claims of discrimination. I think the people who receive the money should be required to pass drug screens as do the people who provide the money."
