From WV MetroNews: “W.Va. State Building & Construction Trades Council to offer drug tests to legislators”
An idea whose time has come!
From WV MetroNews:
Representatives from the West Virginia Affiliated Construction Trades (ACT) Foundation plan to set up at the state capitol Wednesday. They are offering free drug testing to any West Virginia lawmaker who wants to take part.
“It’s a full test. We have a third-party professional who’s doing it,” ACT Director Steve White told WEPM on ‘Panhandle Live’. “We will not know an individual’s results. . . ."
The director explained the rationale for the free test:
White said it is an effort to educate legislators and remove the stigma that leads many to believe West Virginia workers can’t pass a drug test.
White goes on to argue that West Virginia’s construction workers fare much better than the national average.
