Illinois Valley congressman looking to take painkiller addiction

Posted by wlpo on May 17, 2016

While they may not get as much attention as heroin or cocaine, opioids are bad enough to be considered an epidemic.

Republican Congressman Adam Kinzinger is going to offer his ideas to fix the addiction by so many to painkillers. Kinzinger was appointed to represent the U.S. House on a bipartisan conference committee to negotiate a bill to fight the nation’s opioid epidemic.

Kinzinger says “communities across the country are seeing the rise of opioid overdoses and the devastation effects.” The congressman says he’s humbled to be appointed to the committee.
