Via Students for a Sensible Drug Policy.
Rep. Bobby Scott ( D-VA ) will introduce an amendment in the next day or two to the Labor-HHS-Education Appropriations bill to shift $10 million to the Department of Labor’s Reintegration of Youthful Offenders Program from the Department of Education’s Student Drug Testing program.
Take away from a bad idea (student drug testing) and give to a good idea (helping youthful offenders get their lives on track). Sounds like a smart plan to me (which means it’s not likely to pass). Lets give it every chance and contact your Representative.
But do it now — this Amendment could come up any minute (see links at the top of the page).
