A Wisconsin legislative committee is poised to vote on three anti-heroin bills today.
The bill would require opiate dispensers to enter prescriptions in a statewide database within 24 hours. It would also create methadone and pain clinic registries.
Treatment programs using methadone would also be required to report the number of people receiving the medication, plans for tapering patients off it, and relapse rates.
State representative John Nygren, a Republican, introduced the bills. His daughter is struggling with heroin addiction.
