In a move that will surely cause Georgia politicians of both parties to quake in fear, State Rep. Scott Holcomb (D-Atlanta) flicked the ears of Republicans in the statehouse by filing a bill last Friday requiring all state lawmakers to be drug tested.

The bill came in response to one filed last month by Republicans, who want the state to drug-test parents who apply for federal financial assistance. Holcomb, who represents parts of north DeKalb County, tweeted that “if required for the poor, we [lawmakers] need to do it, too.”

State lawmakers since Nov. 15 have been allowed to submit proposed laws and resolutions in advance of next year’s legislative session, which begins Jan. 9.


Standing ovation!
