A California Drug and Alcohol Testing for State Legislators Initiative (09-0014) was intended for but will not be on the 2010 state ballot as an initiated state statute.

Dorothy Cummings and Gary Ellis were the measure's official proponents.

The proposed initiative had these provisions:

  • All state legislators who are elected subsequent to the passage of this initiative would be tested for the illegal use of drugs and the “habitual use of alcohol.”
  • Legislators who test positive would be prohibited from performing his or her official duties or from getting paid until that legislator completes a substance abuse program at his or her own expense.
  • A legislator who got a second positive test would have to permanently forfeit his or her office.
  • Legislators who are using marijuana for medical purposes would be exempt.

Fiscal impact

The California Legislative Analyst's Office estimated the fiscal impact on state and local government as:

"Probably no significant change in state costs in most years."
