Petitions

Signature gatherers at the Department of Motor Vehicles are seeking signatures on petitions that ask for drug tests for recipients of government assistance. One of the gatherers, as part of her introductory pitch, initially said that the goal was to have drug tests for food stamp recipients, but when questioned said it would apply to “all recipients” of government assistance. Some forms of government assistance include disabled benefits and social security.
