A proposal to allow state agencies to conduct random drug tests of government employees once every three months passed through a key House committee on Friday.
Bill sponsor Rep. Jimmie Smith, R-Lecanto, said the proposal would not include state Representatives and elected officials, as that would be a breach of lawmakers' First Amendment rights.
Having just moved back to Florida, I'm quite surprised that I gave up my First Amendment rights when I crossed the state line. I thought I was still a US citizen, but it appears that I was mistaken.
It seems that Ric Scott and his cronies didn't get the message the first time when they passed a law requiring welfare recipients to take a drug test, when a federal judge temporarily blocked the controversial Florida law as a result of a law suit brought forth by the ACLU, which contends that the new law is unconstitutional and violates Fourth Amendment protection against unreasonable search and seizure.
Why does Florida hate The Constitution?
