Matt Bevin on Welfare & Poverty

 

 


Random drug testing for welfare recipients

Republican gubernatorial candidate Matt Bevin called for drug testing of those receiving public assistance. During an hour-long debate, Bevin gave few specifics on his programs if elected governor, but said that he would push for drug testing of welfare recipients. "We need random drug testing for the people who are receiving benefits from the state," he said. "I'll tell you, as an employer, one of the first things these people are needing in order to assimilate back into society is to pass a drug test, and they can't."

Bevin said "while we can't drug test everybody," such testing will help to "limit the influx of people who are struggling with this, because some people don't have the wherewithal if they don't know there may be some punitive result to not enter into activity that would ultimately entrap us."
