(NNPA) – Republican Florida Governor Rick Scott recently signed into law a bill requiring adults applying for temporary cash assistance to undergo drug screening.  His rationale is to increase personal accountability and prevent Florida's tax dollars from subsidizing drug addiction, while still providing for needy children.  Parents failing the required drug test may designate another individual to receive the benefits on behalf of the children.
