State Representative Mark Ferrandino Gives out Urine Cups to Committee

This morning the House Appropriations Committee met to discuss House Bill 12-1046. Needless to say it passed to the Committee as a Whole, but not without members accepting Urine Cups for Drug Testing and a conceptual amendment that all elected officials should pass a drug test just like their friends, neighbors, and in some cases, family member who are receiving benefits from The Colorado Works (Temporary Aid to Needy Families or TANF) programs. For more on the day's meeting, listen here!

To hear from folks who will be affected by this change in policy, click here for the PBS NewsHour clip on CWEE and the women there who are struggling to make ends meet.
