Random drug testing
Governor Rick Scott says he will take his push for random drug testing of state employees all the way to the US Supreme Court.
About 85,000 state employees are caught in the middle of the battle between the governor, the ACLU and a state employee's union.
Opponents and a federal judge argue that the fight is pointless because it violates the constitution.
They say the U.S. Supreme Court would have to toss out the 4th Amendment.
"I think that would infringe on individuals constitutional liberties."
"Citizens should be free from unreasonable search and seizure of their persons."
Many say they support the current drug testing policies, but not random testing.
The drug testing issue is back in court next month.
