Mandatory Drug Testing for Recipients of Public Assistance Bill introduced in OH Senate

State Senator Tim Schaffer has reintroduced a bill in the Ohio Senate (SB 69) that would require drug testing for those receiving any type of public assistance.  Several other states (SC, FL, WV & KY) have also introduced varying versions of this bill.

From The Newark Advocate --
People in Ohio asking for government assistance from the state would have to be screened for drugs if a bill introduced Thursday in the Ohio General Assembly is passed and signed into law.

Sen. Tim Schaffer, R-Lancaster, introduced Senate Bill 69, which would establish drug-testing requirements for adults who apply for need-based programs.

The bill would deal with people applying for state programs that provide cash assistance, medical assistance, housing assistance, food assistance or energy assistance.

The bill is co-sponsored by Sen. Gayle Manning, R-North Ridgeville.
Under the leadership of former OH Senate President Bill Harris and new OH Senate President, State Senator Tom Niehaus, it should come as no surprise that last years version of this Bill died in the GOP-led Senate Finance Committee. So as you can see, even though Ohio's State Senate is GOP-led this year - as it was last year - there is no guarantee SB 69 will make it out of  the OH Senate.

Please contact your State Senator and urge them to support SB 69.

  1. If you live near Cleveland, Ohio, (or know someone who does) please join our public act of reparation in front of the Beck Center against the terrible blasphemies in Jerry Springer: The Opera.

    Time: 5:30PM, Sunday, March 13
    (Remember Daylight Saving Time Change)
    Place: Beck Center for the Arts
    17801 Detroit Ave (and Webb Ave.)
    Lakewood, OH 44107

    There's a lot to do reparation for! The Jerry Springer show blasphemes Our Lord in many terrible ways, such as:

    Eve gropes Jesus in a manner too indecent to describe while the Annunciation is described as immorality

    The crucifixion is mocked and the Eucharist is trashed. Jesus wears a diaper, is fat and effeminate and later admits: "Actually, I am a bit gay."

    In reparation for such shocking blasphemies, please join us in front of the Beck Center tomorrow at 5:30PM.
