The Colfax, Illinois, village board, mandated that all village employees will be subject to random mandatory drug tests. But board members were perplexed when the city clerk asked for the phone numbers and home addresses of board members, so they could be given to the firm that conducts the tests. The clerk explained that, because they draw pay from the village, they are village employees and subject to the tests. The board promptly rewrote the law to exempt themselves.
