Opioid Legislation in the House

Share this on:

Today the US House of Representatives will begin considering a package of 15 bills sponsored by various members designed to address the opioid crisis in America. It is expected that debate will extend through Thursday.

Once the House has voted, a conference committee will be appointed to shape the differences of House legislation with the Comprehensive Addiction Reform Act (CARA), which the Senate has already passed.

According to legislative leadership, they hope to finish the process and have legislation on the President's desk by July 4th.
