drug test food stamps2

‘Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) has proposed drug tests for recipients of food stamp and unemployment benefits, even though the requirement would violate federal law’.

‘The governor, who is fending off Democratic challenger Mary Burke in a close re-election race, released a long proposal including plans for his next term’.

‘In an interview with the Wisconsin Journal-Sentinel, Walker said he realized that establishing a drug test requirement would not be in line with the federal government’s stance’.

We believe that there will potentially be a fight with the federal government and in court,” he said. “Our goal here is not to make it harder to get government assistance; it’s to make it easier to get a job.”

“But the appeals court ruled today to uphold a 2011 decision by an Orlando district court to enjoin the Florida law on the grounds that it violates the 4th amendment protection against unreasonable search and seizure”.

“The simple fact of seeking public assistance does not deprive a TANF applicant of the same constitutional protection from unreasonable searches that all other citizens enjoy,” the court wrote in its ruling today”.
