02/06/19 -- 0666H03.11H (Amendment HA3 to HB 188) -- Exempt Chronic Pain Patients Prescriptions from PDMP

Amendment Number: 
0666H03.11H (Amendment HA3 to HB 188)
Amendment Purpose: 
Exempt Chronic Pain Patients Prescriptions from PDMP
Date of Vote: 
02/06/19
My Vote: 
Yes
Explanation: 

Introduced by Representative Mike Moon (Republican - District 157), this amendment would exempt prescriptions written for patients who have been diagnosed with chronic pain.  As I am against Prescription Drug Monitoring Programs in general, I voted yes on this amendment in hopes that it's adoption might hurt the chances of the final bill passing.  Sadly, this amendment was not adopted, and failed on a roll call vote.
