Senate prepares to pass major opioids package

The Senate is expected to vote later today on a major package of legislation, the Opioid Crisis Response Act of 2018. The legislation is overwhelmingly expected to pass — Republicans leaders are hoping to secure a major achievement before heading home for the midterm elections. The the bill has received bipartisan support throughout the Senate’s committee process.

If the Senate passes its bill, congressional leaders plan to merge it with a similar bill passed earlier this year in the House, H.R. 6 (115). Lawmakers will need to resolve the difference between the bills before passage, including a number of provisions related to Medicaid and fiscal offsets for new spending.
