Florida Lawmaker Proposes Drug Tests for Politicians
Published March 19th, 2014
Polls show that faith in government is at an all time low!
So one Florida lawmaker is trying to restore that trust, but it might make some other politicians squirm.
Florida state representative, Dane Eagle, is introducing a bill that would make every elected official in Florida submit to a drug test.
That includes officials from city hall, to the legislature, all the way to the governor.
If it passes, elected officials would have to take the test within sixty days of an election or re-election or resign.
And if any lawmaker tests positive they would be required to get help.
The bill is currently in the government operations subcommittee.
