Drug Testing For Welfare Gets Closer To Reality

by

The Indiana Senate has approved a proposal that would mean some welfare recipients would face drug testing to keep receiving benefits. The bill would require all applicants for Temporary Assistance for Needy Families to complete a written screening test for possible drug abuse problems.

Those later failing a drug test would have to seek treatment to continue receiving benefit payments. The House earlier approved a different version.

The proposal heads to conference committee.
