Bill Purpose: 
Establishes a Joint Committee on Substance Abuse Prevention
Date of Vote:

My Vote: 
Yes
Explanation: 

HB 240, introduced by Represenative Nick Schroer (Republican - District 107) creates a "Joint Committee on Substance Abuse Prevention and Treatment" to study possible legislative solutions to substance abuse and treatment needs.  While I am skeptical this committee will come up with ideas I am likely to support, the committee itself costs basically nothing (there's only a $3,000 budget for potential mileage reimbursements for meetings).  So in the spirit of having a discussion, I voted in favor of this bill.
