I agree with and support Marci's vote on this issue, and I'm a Marci supporter already.
Come to the light Marci
At first glance I thought it read... Democratic gubernatorial candidate fiasco. Then, after reading the predictable unfair and biased piece, I realized I was correct. Beam me up Scotty.
I'm not totally against this bill, since they can only be tested if there is a suspicion. They aren't going to test every single person on welfare, which Florida did, and spent a whole lot of money.
The party of big government while boasting to be for less government just put more big government in the lives of many.
Oh yes about the other big government and since some have inquired.

The 32 Dumbest And Most Devastating Sequester Cuts
What would be the difference between an employment contract where random testing is mandatory, and a contract with a benefit recipient that makes random testing mandatory?
If you read the 11th circuit court decision that upheld the temporary ban on Florida drug testing of welfare recipients, they are obviously firmly against suspicion-less drug testing of all recipients. However, they did seem to open the door to drug testing of those with a history of drug abuse, or when suspicions arise of current drug use.
Can someone tell me what is wrong with expecting welfare recipients to not test positive for illegal drugs?
I'd like to know why Marci voted for SB 142, a truly vile and insane piece of legislation ("Wrongful Birth.").
Why is the LJ World ignoring National politics with the exception of opinion pieces? The Sequester went into effect last Friday and Washington is on fire over it. It's the biggest piece of political news to come out of DC since the Iraq War over a decade ago and there isn't a peep about it. In fact, the ONLY article about the Sequester was a piece on how it was going to cost KU millions in research funds and that was before it took effect. Does anyone have any idea how that is going to effect Lawrence itself and the economy of the town? Do they care?
I don't expect Pulitzer Prize level in depth analysis. But there IS a whole country out there outside of this town. And what happens in the capitol of the country of that town effects it. I understand that the owner of this paper hates the current president and would prefer to just ignore him. But that doesn't mean there isn't still some journalistic responsibility to actually report the news.
State Sen. Marci Francisco, D-Lawrence: Very very very very lame, Marci. If you weren't surrounded by an ocean of nut cases you would not keep getting re elected. Believe me, when I voted for you I was voting against your opponent.
Marci merely recognizes the quixotic nature of being a sane person serving with a bunch of extremely ideological partisans, and does the best she can to limit the damage then can inflict on the state of Kansas.
Marci is voting more red all the time. Seems like she is starting to get it. Now we have to get Davis to start thinking about working people.
Thanks for asking why they voted the way they did, Scott!
Celebrate freedom week ?
Are we going to have to rehash unpleasant, unpopular historic subjects, such as SLAVERY..... AND THE SLAVES WHO WERE KIDNAPPED FROM AFRICA TO SERVE THEIR AMERICAN OWNERS WHO LEAD OUR REVOLUTION TO GAIN FREEDOM FOR THEMSELVES, FROM OTHER TYRANTS, ELSEWHERE, WHAT WE DID TO THE NORTH AMERICAN INDIANS, HOW OUR COUNTRY WENT FROM THE ORIGINAL 13 COLONIES, TO BEING 50 STATES OF BIG GOVERNMENT, THAT STILL HAS ANOTHER 12 OFFSHORE COLONIES OF OUR OWN ( Oh, .....i'm sorry,.... we call those offshore colonies....... territories....... don't we ?
Why it just makes me well up with pride and makes me want to _in my pants,...... just thinking about it all !
But I'm not sure that I trust the schools to tell the truth about "Merican History",........so maybe some patriotic....( or is it idiotic ) state representatives, might have to write some prepared indoctrinational speeches, on how this country came to be.......the "Topeka Sanitized Way", for the teachers to deliver in class ........and so what if that all sounds like something that would go on in Communist Russia, China or Cuba ? That is like something that the Commies, as well as the nuts in Topeka, would do !!!!!
What in the heck has Marci accomplished her many years in office?
