On Tuesday, the state assembly in Madison passed bills in the special session that is addressing the opioid and heroin epidemic. First District Representative Joel Kitchens says the bi-partisan effort will go a long way in dealing with the growing addiction problem in the state.
Kitchens credits Rep. John Nygren of Marinette for taking a leadership role and building on the HOPE Agenda. Hope stands for Heroin, Opioid, Prevention, and Education. The bills will now go to Governor Scott Walker to sign into law.
