Though I understand where Rep. Fredrick Love (D-Little Rock) is coming from on this, I’d say to him: Don’t.

The legislature’s penchant for putting up hurdles — work rules, drug testing, in medical care for pregnant women, requiring computer use — inspires such blowback. But, I leave it to the ACLU to make the relevant point in a state too prone to pass legislation doomed in court:


Courts agree: Blanket drug testing with no individualized reason for suspicion is unconstitutional. But politicians and other leaders continue to try to implement these programs to score political points at the expense of some of the nation’s most vulnerable communities.

OK, an Arkansas legislator isn’t particularly vulnerable (except to blandishments of special interests.)
