WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court has turned away an appeal by Florida Gov. Rick Scott over his plan to require random drug tests for thousands of state workers.

The justices on Monday did not comment in rejecting an appeal that sought to allow testing on up to 85,000 employees. A lower court is evaluating categories of workers that can be tested including those in law enforcement and sensitive safety jobs.
