In February Republicans filed a bill requiring recipients of the welfare system for low income residents to prove they’re not on drugs or alcohol. The bill was declared dead on arrival also, Senator Amy Koch, filed a similar bill in 2008 that also went nowhere.
the Florida Department of Children and Family Services will be required to conduct the drug tests on adults applying to the federal Temporary Assistance for Families. The aid recipients would be responsible for the cost of the screening, which they would recoup in their assistance if they qualify. Those who fail the required drug testing may designate another individual to receive the benefits on behalf of their children.
This law will take effect on July 1.
