House Committee Introduces a Proposal Regarding Driver Saliva Testing

MONTPELIER – The proposal introduced by the house committee to legalize the sale of recreational marijuana differs from the demands of the Scott administration on the saliva test for drivers. Marijuana tax and regulate bill, S.54 for this year was approved by the House Committee on Government Operations. The theme of the bill is based on roadway safety which Governor Phil Scott highlighted on a large scale.

With some restrictions, the bill would allow enforcement officers to take saliva samples from drivers if they suspect of them being impaired. The bill is not expected to get thumbs up from the governor and the Senate is less likely to support it. It focuses on receiving support from municipalities to allow the opening of marijuana shops in the town. Hence, businesses could open marijuana stores with the implementation of this bill.

The legislation allows police officers to take saliva tests on the roads but they could only be able to administer it at the police department. However, a search warrant issued from a judge is required to carry out this saliva testing. In order to increase roadside safety, the bill authorizes police authority to impose a penalty on people for not wearing a seatbelt. The governor, Phil Scott has refused to support the commercial marijuana sales legislation unless saliva testing is included in it. According to him, legalizing marijuana sales without saliva testing on the roadside would lead to an increase in the cases of impaired driving. Many drivers today are successfully able to pass saliva test, and the government is not liking this fact at all.

In addition, democrats are also differing from the opinion of Gov. Scott to take saliva test on the road. They said that even if drivers pass the test, still, there is no way to make a conclusion about the impairment of drivers at that moment. The governor demanded that police officers should be authorized to take drug saliva test without a warrant. Also, he expressed his demand for more control over Marijuana regulatory board.

Meathead Movers, a San Luis Obispo-based moving company, has taken a decision to increase the entry level pay for all movers and packers. The company has announced its move after taking into consideration the struggles of student-athletes who work as movers for Meathead. In the 22-year history, this is the highest raise ($3 per hour) that has been witnessed by its employees. This move would not only encourage more student-athletes to join Meathead movers, but would also provide more employment opportunities for them. But the raise for the Fresno location will be in the paychecks of 70 out of the total 80 employees.

Aaron Steed, CEO of Meathead Movers, has said that it was a subject of worry for the company as its student employees had been having a tough time meeting their ends meet due to the high cost of living. In order to find the optimal solution to this problem, they decided to figure out the ways to make money without disturbing the schedules of athletes. He said that raising the pay was the possible solution to ensure stability in the lives of student-athletes. Along with the pay-rise of employees, Meathead Movers is also planning to introduce around 200 employees in its five branches before the commencement of its busy season. Similar to this company, Phoenix Movers has also made its name for updating its policies for the welfare of its employees.

Meathead Movers, who currently has over 700 employees, handles more than 20,000 local movers per annum. This is what makes it the largest independent moving company. According to Steed, after this pay raise move, more student-athletes would show their interest for movers and packers service. He also hints about the future target of the company to emerge as the highest earning company due to the highest ability of its employees.
