Michigan opioid bills pass committee, move to full Senate

The Michigan Senate Committee on Health Policy passed two bills this week that look to address the state's opioid crisis, according to The Peninsula.

Senate Bill 273 requires all physicians treating patients for opioid-related overdoses to give them information regarding substance abuse treatment programs, while Senate Bill 274 seeks to limit opioid prescriptions. 

After passing unanimously through the committee, the bills will now be presented before the state Senate.
