Schimel Supports Assembly Bills on Drug Abuse and Addiction

21-Apr-2017

Wisconsin Attorney General Brad Schimel applauds the State Assembly for passing nine bills related to drug abuse and addiction. Schimel told KFIZ it expands on the state legislature’s previous efforts known as HOPE legislation. He says 17 aggressive bills were all passed unanimously in the legislature and they are hoping for similar success depending on what happens in the Senate. He says they are well though out, sensible bills that he supports. He says some of the legislation would expand the Good Samaritan Law, which allows people reporting overdoses to avoid prosecution if they have been using drugs themselves. He says odds are that the person who sees the overdose may be using drugs that day too and that it would also allow the person who overdoses to avoid prosecution.
