Former State Representative Holly Rehder has championed the Prescription Drug Monitoring Program legislation the past several sessions. The southeast Missouri lawmaker is now a member of the senate, and has filed the proposal again. Senator Cindy O’Laughlin says they have addressed the issue in the past, but a final agreement was not reached.
The Shelbina Republican liked some of what was included in the compromise, and can see some benefits.
O’Laughlin isn’t sure what will happen when the session begins in January, and wants to take a look at the bill.
The session begins January 6.
