This was a bi-partisan bill.

"More than 72,000 Americans died of drug-overdose deaths in 2017 -- up nearly 7% from 2016, according to government data. Opioids contributed to more than 49,000 of those deaths."

Perfect example how the politicians can work together on things they can agree on.

The legislation was approved by a vote of 98-1 in the Senate earlier in October and approved by the House with a vote of 393-8.

Well, at least there are still some things our politicians can agree on.

Good.  Maybe a sign of things to come -- but,  I won't hold my breath.   Any news of politicians working with one another across the aisle is worthy of celebration.
