Every day families in our communities are making hard choices: Food or gas to drive to work? Food or medicine? Food or my child’s doctor visit? Food or this month’s rent? The Food Bank of Northeast Arkansas works to eliminate hunger by distributing food to people in need through a network of non-profit agencies and programs.

This program comes to Walnut Ridge every 3 months to help with giving out commodities to Family’s

in need.

Arkansas state lawmakers want to propose Random drug testing – To receive unemployment benefits.

Arkansas state lawmakers want – Random drug testing – To receive unemployment benefits.

Arkansas state lawmakers are weighing a proposal that would require people to submit to drug-testing in order to receive unemployment benefits.

Under the bill, new applicants for unemployment benefits would be required to submit to a drug screen while the state would randomly test people who are already receiving benefits.

The bill was filed by Republican Sen. Jeremy Hutchinson. He said the drug testing encourages people receiving benefits to stay drug-free and therefore increase their chances of securing employment.

Another state lawmaker, Democratic Sen. Stephanie Flowers said that such drug-testing would be unconstitutional. She says there’s no reason to assume that people receiving unemployment benefits are illegally using drugs.

Flowers has proposed an amendment to the bill that would require drug-testing for the state’s elected officials and all public employees.
