The House Energy and Commerce Committee will hold the first of two markup sessions to vote on opioid legislation on Wednesday, May 9. This follows the marathon session that the Health Subcommittee held prior to going to recess when they advanced 57 bills attempting to combat the opioid crisis, 48 of which passed by voice vote. The bills include policies to improve patient safety, enforcement, and prevention as well as coverage and payment issues with Medicare and Medicaid. The second markup will held on May 17th.
