Welfare Drug Test Bill

Updated: Wednesday, April 10 2013, 09:01 AM EDT
North Carolina Senate Republicans want all welfare applicants to be drug tested before receiving benefits.

The Senate Judiciary Committee approved a proposal which would require applicants to undergo mandatory drug screenings.

All applicants must pay for the drug test out of their own pocket and would be refunded only if they tested negative for controlled substances.

Another Republican sponsored bill requiring all welfare applicants to undergo a background check is also scheduled for a vote this week.Welfare Drug Test Bill
