Overdose Prevention and Clemency

Prompted by contacts from students as well as officials with Well WVU, Delegate Fleischauer introduced legislation in 2014 (HB 4189) and 2015 (HB 2045) relating to providing amnesty for persons who call 911 to prevent a death from an alcohol or drug overdose. After extensive work in the House and Senate Health and Human Resources committees during interim and regular sessions, the Governor introduced legislation which ultimately passed, SB 523.
