Bill to Require Some Welfare Drug Testing in Ala.

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) An Alabama senator says he will push legislation requiring drug testing of some welfare applicants even though a similar law got stopped in Florida.
  
Republican Sen. Trip Pittman of Daphne says his bill is much narrower than the Florida law because it applies only to people with drug convictions in the last five years. The Florida law applied to all applicants. A federal judge struck it down two weeks ago.
  
Pittman introduced his bill in the 2013 legislative session. It passed in the Senate but died in the House without coming to a vote. He's got it filed for the 2014 session that begins Tuesday.
  
A group representing Alabama's poor says the money spent on drug testing would be better spent on providing more drug treatment services.
