No Welfare Drug Testing
One vote made all the difference for the Virginia Legislature on a hot button constitutional issue. All twenty of the democrat senators voted no to allowing the state to be able to drug test welfare recipients. The senate is split down the middle with an equal number from each party representing the state, but one senator from Virginia Beach, Harry Blevins decided not to vote. A tie would have left the deciding vote to Lt. Governor Bill Bolling who only votes in the event of a tie. Supporters say the bill would have ensured taxpayer money wasn’t supporting drug use…opponent of the bill called it singling out poor people as a way to cut needed benefits. (CC)
