Gov. Rick Scott and New Drug Testing Policy

Governor Rick Scott Commends Legislative Action on Drug Testing and Announces New Staff Drug Testing Policy
Here is the report:
 
  MARCH 22, 2011; Tallahassee, Fla. – Today, Governor Rick Scott applauded the work of legislative leaders to create mandatory drug testing for adults seeking assistance from Florida’s taxpayers.

“I want to commend Senators Steve Oelrich and Paula Dockery, and Representatives Jimmie Smith and Chris Dorworth, for their hard work on this issue,” Governor Scott stated. “Today’s committee passage by the Senate of Senate Bill 556 has advanced this important policy, and I look forward to the House moving their legislation tomorrow.”

Governor Scott’s support for drug testing those who would seek taxpayer-funded assistance is consistent with promises he made before his election.

In addition, Governor Scott announced Executive Order 11-58. This order will require pre-employment drug testing for all prospective new hires of agencies within the Governor’s purview. It will also require random drug testing of all current employees, from executive leadership to part-time employees.

“Floridians deserve to know that those in public service, whose salaries are paid with taxpayer dollars, are part of a drug-free workplace,” Governor Scott said. “Just as it is appropriate to screen those seeking taxpayer assistance, it is also appropriate to screen government employees.”

MYTH BUSTED: Conservatives Disagreed with Bush

Posted in Conservatives, Economy, People - George W. Bush by americatimes on March 4, 2009

CONSERVATIVES OPPOSED BUSH WHEN HE WAS WRONG
elephantContrary to popular myth promulgated by liberals and repeated by the uninformed, conservatives did criticize Bush when his plans were not in America’s best interest. 

Conservatives are not afraid of criticizing those who are wrong, even people within the same party.  Wrong is wrong no matter who does it.

 

 Sampling of conservatives criticizing President Bush’s plan:
Michelle Malkin against bailouts :
“John McCain screwed this up. The out-of-touch Republican leadership in Washington screwed it up. And let’s be honest: Too many of the same tired old faces now trying to reclaim seats of power — like Newt Gingrich — crumbled on the massive banking bailout and capitulated to Reid/Pelosi/Paulson/Bush when steel spines were needed most.”
Rush Limbaugh, Mark Levin, Hannity against Bush’s bailout. But Mr. liberal-independent-conservative (Bill O’Reilly) attacks them.
Ann Coulter against Bush’s bailout plan
House GOP rallies against Bush bailout deal
HERITAGE Foundation against the Bush-Obama Borrow-Bailout Parade
Rush Limbaugh against Bush’s immigration plan
Conservatives against Bush’s immigration plan
Rush Limbaugh against Bush’s border plan
Ann Coulter against Bush’s open borders policy for immigration
Michelle Malkin against Bush’s immigration policy
Michelle Malkin against Bush’s environmentalism
Michelle Malkin on housing crisis
Michelle Malkin against Bush’s excessive spending
Ann Coulter against Bush’s compassionate conservatism
Ann Coulter against Bush’s homage to the fetishistic rituals of liberalism
Ann Coulter on Bush’s judicial nominee
Conservatives disagree with Bush
CATO Institute on Bush failures
…etc., etc….

Of course, if you get your news from John Steward Comedy Show or from MediaMatters…..you will not be aware of these facts.  Hollywood , radicals and the mainstream media (MSM) love to keep you in the dark.  They don’t care if you look stupid.
