Georgia lawmaker proposes drug tests for legislators

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA (AP) -

A Democratic lawmaker from Atlanta says he's filed a bill that would require all state legislators to submit to drug tests.

Rep. Scott Holcomb tells The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that he filed the bill Friday.

The bill comes after Republicans filed one last month that would require the state to administer drug tests to parents who apply for federal financial assistance.

State lawmakers have been able to pre-file proposed laws and resolutions for the upcoming legislative session, which begins Jan. 9.
