Georgia law allowing drug testing of welfare recipients to be delayed

(WTVM) -

Georgia officials say they will delay enforcement of a new law that allows drug testing of welfare recipients.

Governor Nathan Deal signed off on the bill in April, and it went into effect Wednesday, July 2.

However, the State will hold off on implementing the law until a federal appeals court rules on a related Florida case.
