Human Services Committee to Consider Opioid Reform Legislation
6/11/2018
NOTE TO EDITORS: Please note that the location for this meeting has been changed from an earlier version of this advisory. The new location is updated below.

?WHAT: The House Human Services Committee, chaired by Rep. Gene DiGirolamo (R-Bucks), will hold a voting meeting to consider comprehensive legislation, House Bill 2200, sponsored by Rep. Jason Ortitay (R-Washington/Allegheny) to help address the ongoing opioid epidemic. The bill would compile a complete report on how the state is implementing existing state laws related to this issue. This would then allow lawmakers to see if additional laws are needed or if existing laws just need to be enforced. Furthermore, the measure would centralize litigation against the opioid manufacturers so that the judiciary can effectively weigh what, if any, responsibility the industry has to Pennsylvania taxpayers.

WHO: DiGirolamo and members of the Human Services Committee.

WHEN: Tuesday, June 12, 9 a.m.

WHERE: G-50 Irvis Office Building, Capitol Complex, Harrisburg.

LIVE WEBSTREAMING: The meeting will be streamed live at  GeneDiGirolamo.com.
