A South Dakota Senate committee is considering a bill that would require state officials to develop testing procedures that would determine whether people applying for welfare programs are using illegal drugs.
The bill would require the state Department of Social Services to develop a procedure to screen people for drug use when they apply for financial assistance programs. The department would report the initial results of the testing before next year's legislative session.
The Senate Health and Human Services Committee holds a hearing on the measure Wednesday.
Similar bills were rejected by lawmakers two years ago.
