Fremont Sen. Charlie Janssen's bill would require the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services to develop a plan to test welfare recipients and applicants for drugs. Anyone who tests positive would lose benefits for one year.
Janssen said he thinks the measure would help make sure that welfare benefits are helping people improve their lives instead of just providing handouts.

Got my support. And while we're at it can we figure out a way to not reward welfare single moms producing extra children to gain more money per month? It's a sensitive area but it needs some attention.

Alcohol is the worst most destructive drug available, but I'll bet they don't test for that..
