Florida Governor Rick Scott Signs Bill To Randomly Drug Test State Workers
Submitted by William
This was announced after working hours Monday.
The Republican governor already has tried to enforce random drug testing through an executive order. He suspended it, though, due to a court challenge. The new law also is certain to generate a lawsuit.
