I’m sure this will raise “human rights concerns”, and possibly investigations into racism and genocide.

"you must provide some kind of community service to the community,"

A good start as long as it isn't doing ACORN's work.

Ohio has a, somewhat similar, bill in the works except if you test positive, Ohio tax payers pay for your rehab and you still get benefits. Isn’t that awesome?

hat a wonderful idea!! All states should do this!

So long as they don't figure out a way to make community organizing for Democrats into "volunteer work".

What are the chances of it actually being enacted?

Didn't Florida enact something similar only to have it overturned by a dictator in a black robe?

I’ve said for many years that one solution to the welfare state is for the government to never, ever give money to individuals without something in return. Free money poisons people and makes them dependent. Period.

Yes, even the disabled. They can get at least some free money from charities, but if they want it from the government they are going to have to do something in return.

Drug tests for welfare, what a concept.

Who else would community service be provided to?

***community service to the community***

As opposed to community service to what?

Anyway, here’s a sales pitch: “You too can become President of the United States!”

I can’t even imagine why this word be controversial or even have a single opposition.

I agree it is a great idea, but I doubt it will pass, because the public employee unions will squawk about how using all of these volunteers reduces the need for the union jobs, puts union members out of work. If you have volunteers picking up trash or mowing in the parks, you need fewer grounds employees.

They tried that in Florida and ended up spending more for the tests than they saved in trimming the rolls. Typical government feel-good look-we’re-doing-something nonsense.

Michigan BUMP!

If this passes and survives the inevitable court challenges, it might could serve as a model law for other states.
