Bill Signed Requiring Drug Testing For Taxi Drivers

TaxiArizona Governor Jan Brewer has signed a bill requiring taxi and limousine companies to drug-test drivers before they are hired and re-test them at least once a year. 

Senate Bill 1087 expands on federal rules that already require drug tests for school bus, light rail and other mass transit drivers. 

Brewer called the bill a common-sense but crucial measure that will increase safety and might save lives.  The bill passed the Senate on a 30-to-zero vote and the House 47-to-13, with only Republican opposition.
