CSG Midwest Endorses Resolution on Prescription Drug Monitoring

The Council of State Governments’ Midwest Legislative Conference endorsed and passed a resolution on prescription drug monitoring at its recent Annual Meeting.  The meeting, which was held August 8-11, 2010 in Toronto, Ontario drew state legislators from across CSG’s Midwestern region. 

Currently six of 11 Midwestern states have active prescription drug monitoring programs, while another four have passed enabling legislation (see below for more details).  To learn more about the resolution please click here. 

 

During the meeting legislators also heard a presentation from Kansas Senator Vicki Schmidt about CSG’s ongoing effort to develop a prescription drug monitoring compact.  Work continues on the compact language.  For more information about prescription drug monitoring programs or the Prescription Drug Monitoring compact please contact Crady deGolian at cdegolian@csg.org.
