This week President Trump signed H.R. 6, the bipartisan opioid package into law. This bill will help expand access to treatment, improve prevention programs, and give law enforcement the tools they need. H.R. 6 is a substantial step in the right direction in fighting this epidemic.
We were proud that H.R. 6 includes 4 of our bills:
· POWER Act (HR 5176) helps reduce repeat overdoses
· ALTO Act (HR 5197) encourages alternative pain treatment
· Emmett's Law (HR 5695) improves info sharing between providers & families
· AIDD Act (HR 5628) increases access to safe Rx disposal
