[Madison, Wisc…] Rep. Mike Rohrkaste (R-Neenah) discussed two bills at a public hearing Thursday of the Assembly Committee on Public Benefit Reform that would implement drug testing for individuals receiving certain public benefits like food stamps and unemployment insurance. During the hearing, Rep. Evan Goyke (D-Milwaukee) said he would be introducing an amendment that would require legislators to go through the same drug testing. His amendment is expected to be introduced and voted on at an executive session of the committee next week.
