The Pennsylvania Senate has unanimously approved Sen. Lisa Boscola’s bill to mandate the reporting of any infant born with an addiction to opioids.
“My bill (Senate Bill 368) would ensure the coordination of reporting through the Department of Health, which would track that information and break it down by county,” said Boscola (D-Lehigh/Northampton). “We need to be sure to use the reporting to be more aggressive in combating the opioid epidemic where it is.
