The state may start forcing people on welfare and food stamps to perform community service.

A bill passed by a state senate committee Wednesday would require them to "give back to the community," according to its sponsor.

A second bill would allow caseworkers to demand a drug test if they have reasonable suspicion of drug abuse.

The next step is a vote by the full senate.
