Texas Lawmakers Pushing For Drug Testing For Welfare & Unemployment Benefits [POLL]

Empty Drug TestTexas lawmakers are making a push to start drug testing for many social benefits including welfare and unemployment. This is a controversial and heated argument on both sides.

It wasn’t long ago that this very law was being debated in both Florida and Kentucky. It was met with a lot of support and a lot of opposition. Now, Governor Rick Perry has called for the required drug testing of people receiving unemployment benefits and welfare.

The law has support from other law makers in Austin and is stated to be a way to ensure that the people receiving the benefits are drug free, on a path to self sufficiency, and ready to work.
