SF 32 – Adding hair samples to private sector employee drug testing



SF 32 adds hair samples to the testing methods that may be used in private sector drug testing. Current law allows drug testing on samples of urine, saliva, breath and blood. Senate File 32 allows for testing hair samples if testing standards have been cleared or approved by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration. Two amendments were adopted. One provided for individual privacy. The other requires a sample hair be no longer than one and one-half inch.
