Georgia considers response to fed warning on food stamp drug tests

Georgia officials are considering the next steps after federal officials told Georgia Tuesday not to begin drug testing people who use food stamps.

The federal Food and Nutrition Service warned Georgia’s chief of human services in a letter that implementing the law on July 1 would violate federal rules. The law’s author, though, said he thinks it’s legal and vowed to “see them in court” if the feds try to halt the changes.
