Why Governor Tom Wolf Called a Joint Session to Address the Opioid Epidemic

first_img By: Mark Nicastre, Communications Director Why Governor Tom Wolf Called a Joint Session to Address the Opioid Epidemic   SHARE  TWEET Substance Use Disorder,  The Blog Governor Tom Wolf and legislators from both sides of the aisle have made addressing the opioid epidemic a top priority. Last year over 3,500 Pennsylvanians died from drug overdose – that is an astonishing 10 deaths a day and up from the more than 2,500 reported deaths in 2014. Pennsylvanians suffering from the disease of addiction cannot afford to wait for solutions. That’s why Governor Tom Wolf and legislative leaders called a Joint Session of the General Assembly to address the members of the House and Senate about our collective efforts to lead the nation in combatting the opioid and heroin crisis facing Pennsylvania.Governor Wolf said, “After consultation and discussion with legislative leaders, I believe we share the view that we can make the most profound and positive impact for the people of Pennsylvania by dealing with this issue as part of the remainder of the 2015-16 legislative session, rather than calling a special session.”Why not a special session?After extensive conversations, Governor Tom Wolf and legislative leaders decided that the most timely and efficient way to make progress in the fight against the opioid epidemic would be to call a joint session, rather than a special session as previously discussed. A special session would require bills to be reintroduced with co-sponsor memos to be circulated, and each new bill would take a minimum of six legislative days to reach the Governor’s desk. Special session committees would also have to be organized to review each new bill before the bill would be called up for a vote in the House or Senate. All told, this would amount to at least a two-week process. Several bills addressing this crisis have already passed the House and Senate in the current legislative session and are positioned to reach the Governor’s desk in a much timelier fashion. A four caucus workgroup has been working diligently throughout the summer to build consensus on these bills, and we are hopeful that by calling for a joint session, we can move many of these to the Governor’s desk for signature without further delay.What is a joint session?During the joint session, Governor Wolf will address both the house and the senate this fall about the importance of taking quick action to combat the opioid and heroin crisis . Following his address, Governor Wolf and the legislative leaders will address the opioid epidemic by looking at bills that have already been introduced and started the legislative processes which means that we can more swiftly tackle the opioid epidemic.What do we hope to achieve the joint session?Specifically, some of the goals of this legislative season are to require doctors and prescribers to check the Prescription Drug Monitoring Database every time they prescribe, increase education about opioid and pain management for current and future medical professionals, limit the quantities of opioids that can be prescribed in emergency rooms to a patient at one time, require insurance carriers to cover abuse deterrent opioids at the same cost as their non-abuse deterrent counterparts, add opioid misuse to existing public school curriculum on drug and alcohol abuse, and establish a voluntary directive for patients who don’t wish to receive opioids in their medical care.With 10 people a day in our commonwealth dying from drug overdoses, we cannot afford to stall. This fall, Governor Wolf and the legislature will make sure that battling the opioid epidemic is a top priority.

Libya’s Recognised Government Launches Air Strike on Camp in Tripoli

first_imgLibya’s internationally recognised government conducted air strikes on a military camp on Saturday and attempted to hit the airport in Tripoli, the capital controlled by a rival administration, officials said.The attack came a day after the official government said it had launched a military offensive to “liberate” Tripoli, which has been seized by a group called Libya Dawn in August, reinstating a previous assembly.The recognised Prime Minister Abdullah al-Thinni and the elected parliament have been confined to eastern Libya since then but both administrations allied to armed factions fight for control four years after the ousting of Muammar Gaddafi.Saqer al-Joroushi, an eastern air force commander, said his aircraft hit the Mitiga airport in Tripoli and a camp used by Libya Dawn near another airport in the capital.A security source in Tripoli said the camp had apparently been hit while planes had missed the airport.Tripoli-based al-Nabaa television station said war planes had also hit the western Zuwara airport though there was no immediate confirmation for this.On Friday, U.N. Special Envoy Bernardino Leon said the military offensive threatened international efforts to reach agreement in the next few days on a unity government and lasting ceasefire.Western leaders say the U.N. talks are the only way to end the chaos in Libya where Islamist militants have gained ground.Both sides have attacked each other with war planes in the past few days. They face internal divisions and are dominated by former rebels who helped oust autocrat Muammar Gaddafi, but who now use their weapons to fight for territory.last_img read more

Severe respiratory illness among Indiana residents who reported vaping

first_imgStatewide—The Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH) is investigating reports of 18 individuals with severe acute respiratory illness who reported recent vaping or dabbing (vaping marijuana oils, extracts, or concentrates). One is an out-of-state resident who was hospitalized in Indiana. These cases are similar to cases reported in other states. Nationally, approximately 150 possible cases of severe respiratory illness in individuals who report e-cigarette product use have now been reported in 15 states from June 28, 2019, to August 20, 2019. No deaths have been reported.Indiana cases range in age from 16 to 65 years (median age, 26), and 72% are male. This is an ongoing investigation, and the ISDH is working with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and other states responding to reports of similar cases.Patients experienced respiratory symptoms including: Cough Shortness of breath Chest pain Fatigue Fever Other symptoms included weight loss, nausea, abdominal pain, and diarrhea. Chest X-ray (CXR) showed bilateral opacities, and chest CT imaging shows diffuse ground-glass opacities, often with subpleural sparing. These symptoms worsened over a period of days or weeks before admission to the hospital. All patients were placed on oxygen; mechanical ventilation has been reported in only a few of the Indiana cases. Evaluation for infectious etiologies (bacterial, viral, and fungal) was negative in all confirmed cases.The ISDH is requesting that healthcare providers who are seeing patients with unexpected serious respiratory illness and who report a history of inhalation drug use in the previous 90 days, particularly vaping, report these to their local health department (LHD) as soon as possible. LHDs who are alerted of suspect cases should notify the ISDH immediately.It is currently unknown what specific vape product(s) or chemicals may be linked to these illnesses, or where they were obtained. If the patient has vape product available and would be willing to submit for testing, please notify the ISDH to work out submission logistics.To report suspected cases, submit vape product, or for additional questions, please contact Sara Hallyburton, ISDH Respiratory Epidemiologist, at (317) 234-2809, or the ISDH Epidemiologist-on-Call after hours at (317) 233-1325. You may also contact the Indiana Poison Center at (800) 222-1222.last_img read more

Arsenal announce half-yearly profits

first_img Press Association He added: “Our desire is to make everyone connected with Arsenal proud of the club. We know that comes through winning trophies but also through the way we do things and that will remain our constant guide.” The financial report states the that “profit on sale of player registrations amounted to £42.5million” – down from £63million in 2011 but still a cause of concern to those fans who believe Arsenal have not replaced players such as van Persie, and before him Cesc Fabregas, by those of similar quality. Hill-Wood, however, added in a statement: “Although we were disappointed to see Robin van Persie leave the club, we have taken steps to secure our best players going forward and have recently signed Jack Wilshere, Theo Walcott, Kieran Gibbs, Aaron Ramsey, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Carl Jenkinson to new long-term contracts. “During this financial period we also invested £40.9million in the acquisition of new players, Lukas Podolski, Santi Cazorla and Olivier Giroud, and the extension of other player contracts. More recently we added Nacho Monreal to our ranks from Malaga.” Hill-Wood said that the Premier League club’s agreement to bring in financial fair play-style spending controls would help Arsenal. He said: “These new rules will be good for us, good for the Premier League and good for the game as a whole. “It is important that we maintain the quality and level of competition if the game is to continue being a compelling spectacle and we believe the introduction of tighter financial regulation will assist all clubs to compete while remaining financially responsible.” Arsenal’s football turnover dropped from £113.5million to £106million as a result of four fewer home fixtures compared to the same period last year. The report also confirmed an extended partnership with Emirates which will be worth up to £150million. The profit, achieved effectively by the sale of Robin van Persie to Manchester United, also accompanies an increased figure of £123.3million in cash reserves, up £7million. The figures are for the half year to the end of November 2012. Arsenal chairman Peter Hill-Wood said: “Our ability to compete at the top of the game here and in Europe is underpinned by our financial performance which gives the club strength and independence.” center_img Arsenal have announced a profit of £17.8million in the club’s latest half-yearly results – figures that will increase pressure to provide more money for Arsene Wenger to spend on transfers.last_img read more
