Walker Begins Releasing Budget Plans

There’s a lot of good stuff in here, but this will be the lighting rod.

Helping People Move from Government Dependence to Independence:
Some employers in high-demand fields, including manufacturing, require their employees be drug-free for safety and other reasons. To assist those looking to secure these positions, the budget includes a plan to require drug testing of those who are applying for or receiving benefits from programs, which may include unemployment insurance, FoodShare, Transform Milwaukee, transitional jobs, and others.

Those who fail the drug test will be offered the opportunity to participate in a drug treatment program, free of charge, as well as job training.
