PDMP Bill Advances in Mo. House

Missouri House members voted this week for a proposed bill sponsored by Rep. Holly Rehder (R-Sikeston) that would establish a prescription drug monitoring program (PDMP) to track when doctors write prescriptions for painkillers and other controlled substance medicines within the state. Missouri is still the only state in the U.S. that does not have a PDMP. The proposed bill requires a final vote in the House and would then move to the Senate, where similar previous bills have been blocked. Read more here, and read the proposed legislation here.
