Two Days of Hearings Begin March 21

The Energy and Commerce Health Subcommittee of the House of Representatives will hear a set of more than 20 bipartisan bills during its second hearing focusing on addressing the opioid crisis.

While most hearings on legislation don’t last more than a day, this hearing, scheduled to begin March 21, will last for two days.

Among the issues in the various bills are streamlining efforts for funding grants, hospital and physician standards on patient history of addiction, how to properly dispose of unused opioids, and expanding access to underserved communities.
