The pace continues to pick up as we work toward our deadline to adjourn on May 20.
Here’s an update from St. Paul:
Bipartisan Measures for Minnesotans Approved in House
On Monday, we approved a couple bills that passed with overwhelming bipartisan support. These are:
HF 400, the bill which would establish an Opioid Stewardship Advisory Council to fund addiction prevention, treatment, and recovery services. These services will be funded by grants from a new Opioid Stewardship Fund, resources for which would come from fees paid by pharmaceutical manufacturers and distributors. You can review the remarks I made on the House Floor here.
