Tribune on TANF Drug Testing Proposal: "Its Very Premise is Wrong"

The Tribune's Hank Waters weighs in on the proposal to drug test TANF parents for whom the DSS determines there's "reasonable suspicion" for illegal drug use:  "The problem with this law goes beyond its difficulty of enforcement. Its very premise is wrong. Supporters say welfare recipients should not receive government money to fund a drug habit, but on this basis anyone receiving government money should be subject to testing...Supporters try to cast this bill as a way to save money, but that’s a crock...Once the legislative demagogues have cast their votes, the parade will be over and the law soon forgotten. This sort of moralistic knee-jerking is too common these days in Jefferson City."
