Bill Caption

Relating to the monitoring of prescriptions for certain controlled substances.

Fiscal Notes

No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.

Bill Analysis

Summary: SB 1643 would amend some administrative procedures of the controlled substances prescription database program.

Analysis: The bill would not require patients to submit any more information but would require some additional reporting by physicians. Because this program already exists and this bill would not require any additional funding, it does not address our liberty principles. We are neutral on SB 1643.
