ACLU examines N.M. blood test bill (Listen again)
(2011-01-27)
(KSFR) -
A bill in the New Mexico Senate would require submitting to and passing a drug test as a condition for receiving unemployment benefits. Failure to do so would deny benefits for 26 weeks. Another bill introduced in the House would also require drug testing as a condition for receiving public assistance. Peter Simonson, executive director for the New Mexico ACLU, says both measures are likely unconstitutional.
