AL State Rep. Alvin Holmes Calls For Drug Testing Legislators
Submitted by Airedelapaz
Alabama Democrat Alvin Holmes believes what’s fair is fair.
Holmes said he would propose an amendment that would require state legislators to take a drug test and require others who receive federal funds through the state, including those who receive funding for not farming all of their agricultural land, to be tested.
“It wouldn’t be fair to just pick out one group of welfare recipients because they are receiving federal funds and require them to take drug tests,” Holmes said.
He has an interesting proposal for his colleagues.
“I’m going to volunteer to take one (a drug test) to set an example for the other members of the Legislature,” Holmes said. “I guarantee you that I am going to pass it. If not, I will turn my resignation in to the secretary of state, which would make a lot of people in the state of Alabama happy.”Click here for reuse options!
