Opioid bill becomes Missouri law

Bipartisan legislation aimed at increasing opioid addiction treatment was signed into law by Missouri’s governor on Thursday morning in Jefferson City.

The governor signed six bills, including legislation from State Rep. Dirk Deaton (R-Noel). His bill gives the state Department of Corrections and the Judiciary access to Missouri’s opioid addiction treatment and recovery fund to pay for treatment and law enforcement costs.
