    Ok passes drug testing for welfare recipients.

     

    I have no problem with testing these individuals. What I have a problem with is our law makers who I think should be tested too. The bill was.

    sponsored by Rep. Guy Liebman (R-Oklahoma City)  in fact the amendment added will include lawmakers however only 15 days of filing papers. Not good enough! Make it random testing!

     

     

    From the article

     

     

    Before the final vote, but after being needled by Democrats, who chided their Republican colleagues for singling out the poor for drug testing, the House passed an amendment to the bill that also requires anyone seeking state or local office to certify they have passed a drug test within 15 days of filing papers. The amendment passed 68-12 on a bipartisan vote, despite the objections of bill sponsor Rep. Guy Liebman (R-Oklahoma City).
