Congressmen Introduce Legislation Calling for Hair Testing Pilot Program

Congressmen Introduce Legislation Calling for Hair Testing Pilot Program

Congressmen Ribble (R-WI) and Fleischmann (R-TN) introduced a bill, HR 6641, directing the DOT Secretary to establish a pilot program to investigate the benefits and feasibility of using hair specimens for CMV driver testing. A 2007 GAO investigation indicated that there are a number of fraud challenges with the current system. Because the 112th Congress ends at the end of this year, the bill will have to be reintroduced in the next Congress, should the Congressmen wish to pursue the pilot program.
