A bill created to fix an “unconstitutional” testing fee for drug and alcohol blood tests passed the legislature last week and now awaits Gov. Bill Haslam’s signature, Humphrey on the Hill reports. The $250 fee, which was being remitted to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation from individuals who were convicted of DUI, was found by the state Court of Appeals last year to be unconstitutional. The new legislation directs the testing fee instead to the state’s general fund.
