While Georgia ranks dead last in job growth, our lawmakers ignored bills that would bring jobs back to Georgia and instead targeted people who’ve lost their jobs.
On the last day for the General Assembly to pass bills through at least one chamber to give them a chance to become law, both chambers approved bills that would force parents seeking temporary public assistance to take a drug test.
These bills are not law yet. With your help, we can send a strong message to our lawmakers.
You can send a pee cup to Gov. Deal with a small $8 donation to Better Georgia.
We will tell Gov. Deal that if he’s going to require drug tests for Georgia residents that he should pee first.
Government abuses happen at the top, with those who have power.
The state gives money to many groups of people, including our elected officials and corporate executives who receive millions in tax credits and government contracts.
It’s disgusting to see lawmakers single out just one group for extra scrutiny. This group happens to be the state’s poorest families who have the least power or influence to abuse the government system.
On top of that, there seems to be no need for the law. The state’s own estimates show that the drug test program may not save a dime and could cost $84,500 per year.
This is a ridiculous cost for a political stunt.
For a small, one-time donation you can send a strong message to your elected officials. We’ll make sure Gov. Deal, your State Representative and your State Senator get a pee cup along with a strong message from Better Georgia to explain why this law is wrong.
