ACTION ALERT: No Drug Testing for Unemployment Benefits

Congress is scheduled to vote today, February 15th, on a resolution (H.J. Res 42) that would expand State’s ability to drug test residents who apply for unemployment insurance. If this resolution were to pass, it would be the first step by Congress toward undoing federal restrictions on states conditioning receipt of unemployment and other forms of public assistance on a drug test. We need to show strong opposition to expand the use of drug testing for public assistance.
