The 2014 legislative session adjourned sine die, or “the end,” at midnight April 15. The session produced measures that will affect economic development, appropriate funds for state government for the next two years, public health, safety and education. Of course, as with every session, there were measures that did not succeed. I am especially disappointed that my bill, Senate Bill 5, did not make it through the House, and so many lives continue to be lost from the deadly scourge of heroin. The bill created a three-prong approach to take immediate action against the growing abuse of heroin in our state. Education, Interdiction and Treatment were clearly prioritized in the legislation that also included stiffer penalties for traffickers of heroin who could be charged with homicide when an addict overdosed and died.
