We need your help in contacting your representatives and senators in Jefferson City via e-mail, snail mail, and by phone. Please come so we can educate you fully on the laws we are working on and assist you in making these contacts. If you take 30 minutes out of your day I promise you it will help save a life. Here is a brief description of the legislation we are working on; House bill 90 establishes a prescription database monitoring program, Missouri is the only state without one. House bill 88 makes needle exchange programs legal, these programs reduce HEP C/HIV and studies show they also reduce addiction because people using these programs are 5 times more likely to seek treatment. House bill 294 is The Good Samaritan Law which grants limited immunity from arrest if someone calls 911 in the event of an overdose. House bill 710 will leave all decision in regards to medication up to doctors and not judges when someone is in a drug court program.

The 911 Good Samaritan bill just passed out of the rules committee 12-0. It is now headed to the speaker of the house for a full house vote. We still have the senate after this but this is the farthest this bill has ever gone. Thank you to all for the support and sticking by this bill for 5 years. Thank you Representative Steven Lynch for your hard work as this bills sponsor!
