Medicine retun bill awaiting full Senate vote

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!
