A Constitutional Amendment And Drug/Criminal Background Checks For Welfare

Via Plott Hound

The John Locke Foundation’s Locker Room Blog asks if anybody noticed that a proposed Constitutional Amendment snuck through the House.  The amendment “would enshrine eminent domain protections into the N.C. Constitution.” Its not a done deal yet, though.

Civitas Institute of NC tells us that:

“On Wednesday afternoon, the North Carolina Senate took a bold step in combating the brokenness of our assistance programming by approving HB 392 by a 43-6 margin. The bill requires both that applicants undergo criminal background checks through their local Department of Social Services offices as well as passing a drug test in order to receive assistance.”

This one isn’t a done deal, yet, either.
