Senators Urge Governor to Sign Senate Bill 936

(HARRISBURG) – Senate President Pro Tempore Joe Scarnati and Senator Don White have issued the following statement regarding Governor Wolf’s proposed executive actions to curb opioid abuse:

“We urge the Governor to take real action by signing Senate Bill 936.  Senate Bill 936 was passed by the General Assembly last week and continues to sit on the Governor’s desk.  The legislation addresses the growing opioid crisis by enacting a nationally recognized, evidence-based drug formulary for our workers’ compensation system.  The Governor’s desire to use Executive action to issue vague promises of future possible actions to combat opioid abuse does not take the place of enacting tangible reform.”
