The Valparaiso Community Schools board is right to consider random drug testing for students who park at school or participate in extracurricular activities. Some other districts already have this plan in place.
PORTAGE | Portage Township Schools Superintendent E. Ric Frataccia said he may recommend a policy requiring random drug testing of high school students in the next few months.
Talk about a loaded question. State Rep. Hal Slager's question is this: Do you believe Indiana, like other states, should implement random drug testing as a requirement to receiving state-funded welfare benefits?
Testing welfare recipients for drug use is a popular cause, but the dollars and cents don't add up.
INDIANAPOLIS | The Republican-controlled Indiana House voted 78-17 Monday to spend $2.7 million next year on a drug testing program for some welfare recipients that may save the state $1.5 million in denied benefits.
It's too bad the Indiana Senate apparently killed the bill testing those receiving government handouts. All it really needed was a little tweaking.
INDIANAPOLIS | A pricey plan to drug-test some welfare recipients and state legislators failed to advance out of an Indiana Senate committee Wednesday.
INDIANAPOLIS | State lawmakers could lose their Statehouse parking spot, office space, electronic devices and staff if they fail a drug test under a modification made Monday to House Bill 1007.
INDIANAPOLIS | A proposed pilot program to drug-test Indiana welfare recipients in three counties was changed Friday to also require mandatory drug and alcohol tests for members of the General Assembly.
INDIANAPOLIS | Some Indiana welfare recipients would be required to pass a drug test under legislation approved by a House committee Tuesday.
INDIANAPOLIS | The Indiana House voted 88-1 Tuesday to take unemployment payments away from any worker collecting benefits who fails a pre-employment drug screen.
INDIANAPOLIS | The beleaguered Department of Toxicology at Indiana University's School of Medicine appears likely to be shut down and replaced by a state agency.
