The Latest: House votes to overturn drug testing regulation

By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON Feb 15, 2017, 5:40 PM ET

The Latest on the efforts of Congress to revoke regulations issued in the final months of the Obama administration (all times local):

5:15 p.m.

Mississippi, Wisconsin and Texas are among the states that have passed laws seeking to expand drug testing in their unemployment insurance programs.
