ATLANTA , GA (AP) -- December 3, 2011

A Democratic lawmaker from Atlanta says he's filed a bill that would require all state legislators to submit to drug tests.

Rep. Scott Holcomb tells The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
(http://bit.ly/vHFeAW ) that he filed the bill Friday.

The bill comes after Republicans filed one last month that would
require the state to administer drug tests to parents who apply for
federal financial assistance.

State lawmakers have been able to pre-file proposed laws and
resolutions for the upcoming legislative session, which begins Jan.
9.
