Illinois GOP Rep. Bill Mitchell has proposed HB1402 that would certify new members of the General Assembly to be drug free. Under the bill, those failing the drug test would not be eligible to appear on the ballot.
That’s OK by me, but what about AFTER they are elected?
I say let’s test every lawmaker before any and every important vote.
How many Democrats were stoned, drunk, high on meth or crack when they rammed through the massive tax increase in the middle of the night?
HB1402 should be expanded to include drug testing/alcohol levels of current members of the legislature to protect taxpayers from their wacky and destructive antics.
