Controversial welfare bill passes Michigan Senate

LANSING (WKZO) -- A controversial bill is one step closer to becoming law. The Michigan Senate passed a bill Thursday that would require those on welfare to undergo drug testing.

Under the bill, the Department of Human Services would be required to screen welfare applicants and recipients if they suspect substance abuse. Those who refuse the test would have their benefits denied and if they fail the test they would be referred to a treatment program. If they test positive a second time they would lose their benefits.
