    Paul Secunda, professor of law, commented on Gov. Scott Walker's upcoming budget proposal, which will require drug testing of recipients of Medicaid, food stamps and jobless benefits. The proposal will ban drug users from receiving aid. "Because the proposal targets a broad range of programs - and would require modifying federal rules on Medicaid eligibility - it will face challenges either from the Obama administration or rights groups like the American Civil Liberties Union," said Secunda.
