Senate Panel Approves Bill For Some Welfare Drug Screening

Drug Screening
Drug Screening

An Indiana Senate panel has approved a bill requiring some welfare recipients to pass drug tests before they can receive benefits. The measure approved Thursday would only apply to welfare recipients who had previously been convicted of a drug crime.

Opponents have said the measure violates the constitutional protection against unreasonable search and seizure. Supporters of the measure say it's needed to ensure welfare recipients are not converting benefits into money for buying drugs.
