    Default Hair Testing Will Be Allowed

    https://www.truckinginfo.com/317575/...-under-new-law

    President Trump signed into law on Oct. 24 legislation aimed at combating the nation’s opioid crisis that contains provisions on hair testing for illegal drug use that have been long sought by trucking lobbies.

    Proponents of hair testing argue that it has advantages, including a longer detection window, easier collection, and results that are harder to fake.

    The new law requires the Department of Health and Human Services toreport within 60 days to the Senate Commerce and House Transportation and Infrastructure Committees on the status for hair testing guidelines, the reasons for delay in issuing guidelines, and a schedule for completion of the guidelines.

    OMB to Review Hair Drug-Testing Proposal

    A hair drug-testing proposed rule has been forwarded to the White House Office of Management and Budget for review, a top official with the U.S. Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration said at a meeting June 11.

    However, Ron Flegel, chairman of SAMHSA’s Drug Testing Advisory Board, said that the notice of proposed rulemaking is months away from the public comment period.

    SAMHSA is a subagency of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, which has final responsibility and authority for the rule. The Department of Transportation must follow the testing guidelines issued by HHS but can tailor some of the specific procedures, said Patrice Kelly, director of DOT’s Office of Drug, Alcohol, and Compliance.
