what is the status of the legislatures random drug testing law that is supposed to go into effect July 1? I know scotts executive order was declared unconstitutional but what about the new law?

yes I am referring to the Flordia workplace act. Will scotts appeal on the executive order cause the new law to not go into effect or is it expected that the new law will go into effect and it will be challenged in court?
Hello again,

I am sorry I didn't make myself more clear. The decision on the Executive Order has nothing to do with the law. The law is going into effect on July 1, regardless of the outcome of the Executive Order. The Executive Order was a different issue not covered by the law.
