House to vote on drug testing for welfare benefits
May 21, 2013 07:55 GMT
AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -- Texas lawmakers will be voting on whether to require some welfare recipients to take drug tests.
The Texas House is scheduled to vote on the measure on Tuesday afternoon.
Senate Bill 11 would require people enrolled in the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families to answer questions to see if they are at risk of abusing drugs. If they fail the screening, they'll be required to take a drug test.
If the person tests positive, state officials can suspend the person's benefits. There are measures that allow the person to challenge the results, and to make sure that children who rely on food stamps still receive their benefits.
The measure has already passed the Senate. If approved on Tuesday, the bill will go Gov. Rick Perry for his signature.
