Federal Appeals Court Decision Won't Deter Scott Walker

Court Strikes Down Drug Tests for Florida Welfare Applicants.  (The New York Times, 12/3/2014)

Scott Walker follows the Florida model
Eleven states have passed laws to mandate drug testing since 2011, but most of those differ from Florida’s because they require testing only if drug use is suspected. After the Florida Legislature approved its law, Georgia followed suit. A similar measure was ruled unconstitutional in 2003 by a Michigan Court of Appeals.

Walker must have looked at this map and told himself, I'm gonna need some of those Southern Republican primary voters when I run for President.
