Congressional Relations - We have worked with Congressional staff members of both the Senate and House of Representatives providing briefings and assisting in reviewing draft drugged driving legislation that recently has been signed into law [Safe, Accountable, Flexible, and Efficient Transportation Equity Act of 2005, Sec. 2013].
We have also worked with House and Senate staff on drug free workplace issues. Some years ago, then Speaker Newt Gingrich requested that TWG develop an implementation plan to drug-test members and staff of the House of Representatives as is required by House Rule #1, Sec. 9. A plan was developed and delivered to the Speaker, however, the program has yet to be implemented. Dr. Walsh has testified many times before various committees of both the House and Senate.
