Co-Prescribing to Reduce Overdoses Act (HR 3680)

Last week the House passed the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act of 2016 which included the Co-Prescribing to Reduce Overdoses Act (HR 3680) -- a bill I authored to help expand access to overdose reversal drugs like Naloxone. I believe the Co-Prescribing to Reduce Overdoses Act is an important tool in fighting the opioid epidemic in our country. I was proud to serve on the conference committee that worked to iron out the differences between the House and Senate bills. This package also passed in the Senate last week and has been sent to the President’s desk for his signature.
