MADISON – Yesterday, Representative James Edming (R-Glen Flora) joined with his Assembly colleagues to approve nine bills aimed at combating the growing opioid epidemic in Wisconsin.

“This epidemic has impacted communities across my district, just like so many others around Wisconsin,” said Rep. Edming.  “I am pleased to support these bills that will continue the progress Wisconsin has made in fighting the opioid problem in our state.”

These nine bills are a part of Special Session on Opioid Abuse which was called by Governor Walker and are a continuation of the H.O.P.E. Agenda.

“Wisconsinites have seen far too many lives cut short because of opioid addiction,” said Rep. Edming.  “I am committed to continuing to work with my colleagues, medical experts, law enforcement, and other advocates to find new ways to help those suffering from addition to get the help they need.”
