Senate Committee Changes Drug Testing Bill For Welfare Recipients

A state Senate committee has made changes to a bill requiring drug testing for welfare recipients.

Now under this version only welfare recipients with a misdemeanor drug conviction would now face mandatory testing.

Felony convictions make them ineligible.

The committee approved the altered bill on a party line vote.

In order for the idea to receive funding for the proposed testing it has to pass the Senate Appropriations Committee.
