    KDBC 4 CBS: Bill Filed In Texas Targets Welfare Reform

    ".....The meeting comes just a day after State Senator Jane Nelson filed a bill that would target the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families Program, otherwise known as the welfare system.
    Senate Bill No. 11 draws out requirements for welfare such as stronger job training, drug testing for high-risk applicants and tougher policies that would keep people from using their welfare dollars to buy alcohol or tobacco."

    Interesting and hopefully much better than FL.

    It’s unclear as to ‘better,’ but the bolded is just as un-Constitutional in Texas as in Florida.

    How so? :confused:

    I admit, I didn't follow the whole Florida thing too closely, but I don't remember it having constitutionality issues.

    I wouldn't drug test. I'd give them six months and then cut them off.
