Standards for unemployment drug tests go to Pence

– The Indiana General Assembly has approved a proposal to drop drug-testing standards for unemployment benefit applicants.

The House passed the measure 65-34 and state senators approved the bill 34-14 during the final day of session Thursday. It still needs approval from Gov. Mike Pence before becoming law.

The measure would drop current requirements for drug tests taken by applicants.

Indiana labor groups say unreliable tests bought at drug stores could be used in the absence of state standards. Opponents of the bill disagree on how stringent tests should be, but they believe some oversight is needed.

The measure was tacked onto a child labor bill in the closing days of the session.
