Creating Access to Opioid Antagonists

West Virginia has had the highest opioid drug overdose rate in the country and the House's Health and Human Resources Committee, on which Delegate Fleischauer has served as Vice Chair and Minority Chair, has been working diligently to produce legislation that would increase access to nalaxone, a medication which can reverse the effect of an overdose. She sponsored bills in 2014 (HB 4161) and 2015 (HB 2044), but these proposals were revamped by the Governor and passed in 2015 as SB 335.
