Okla. Senate OKs Scaled-back Drug Test Bill For Welfare Recipients
04/26/2012

 Oklahoma welfare recipients could be
subjected to drug tests and denied benefits under a scaled-back
drug testing bill approved in the state Senate.
     The Senate on Wednesday voted 46-2 for the compromise bill that
authorizes the Department of Human Services to conduct drug tests
on welfare applicants if they have a reasonable suspicion the
person is using drugs. The proposed law applies to the Temporary
Assistance for Needy Families program, or TANF, which serves an
estimated 4,000 Oklahoma adults in an average month.
     The bill previously would have required all TANF recipients to
take and pay for a drug test before receiving benefits. The revised
bill applies only to applicants who come under suspicion after
being screened for potential drug use.
