AP: “Gov. Scott Walker wants to make Wisconsin the first state in the country to require childless adults applying for Medicaid to undergo drug screening, a move that could serve as a national model. … A requirement that childless adults receiving food stamps be screened for drugs was passed in the prior state budget, but it’s yet to take effect pending federal approval. Former President Barack Obama’s administration warned Wisconsin at the time the requirement was passed that it was barred under federal law.”

The story says 14 other states have such a drug screening program in effect.
