Senate Bill 5234 update: Yesterday, Senator Kline "pulled" the secure medicine take-back bill from the "white sheet" out to the Senate floor. A voice vote was held and the Aye's had it, against loud Nay's. The bill is now listed as "on 2nd reading" which means it is on the Senate floor awaiting a vote. It is not clear when a floor vote may occur.
As expected, pharmaceutical companies are lobbying hard against it. State senators need to hear from local advocates for a statewide medicine return program now!
