Welfare Responsibility Act

Section 1

1. In order to receive welfare or food stamps in the Mideast Region, an applicant must submit to a drug test.

2. If it is determined that the applicant has no history of narcotic or alcohol addiction, the applicant shall be cleared to receive welfare and/or food stamps within the Mideast Region.

3. If it is determined that the applicant has any narcotic and/or alcohol in their system at the time of their application, they shall be barred from receiving welfare or food stamps in the Mideast Region, and instead shall be offered counselling in order to kick their habit and begin to receive welfare.

4. "Narcotic" shall be defined as any inhalant, hallucinogens and any non-prescription depressants, anti-depressants, stimulants and opiates.

Section 2

1) One may receive welfare for a maximum of one calendar year before they are put on review by the state in which they reside.

2) If it is determined that the welfare recipient is actively searching for work and, however, is unable to find work, they shall be cleared to continue receiving welfare for another calendar year.

3) If it is determined that the welfare recipient is not actively searching for work, they shall be denied welfare for the next calendar year and instead will be placed in a state Government-sponsored workforce training class.

4) Upon completion of the class, the individual shall be required to submit job applications to a minimum of five (5) companies. If all five companies deny the application, the individual shall be granted continuation of welfare.

Section 3

1) Any individual caught abusing or cheating the welfare system shall be sentenced to six (6) months in prison in the state where they reside. They shall also have to pay a fine of $1000.

2) "Abuse" shall be defined as submitting false DNA samples for a drug test, lying about job applications or skipping workforce training classes.

Seeing no debate in 48 hours, this is brought to a final vote.  Members will vote AYE, NAY, or ABSTAIN.  This will be a 48 hour vote.

Voting is now closed.  The AYEs are 4, and the NAYs are 0, with 1 not voting.  The AYEs have it, and the bill is passed.  This bill is now passed onto the Governor for his signature or veto.
