MI Senate bills would allow librarians to administer Narcan

Three bills that would allow people such as librarians and teachers to administer treatments for opioid overdoses are being considered in Michigan’s state Senate. They are Sen. Paul Wojno’s Senate Bill 200, Sen. Curtis Vanderwall’s Senate Bill 282, and Peter Lucido’s Senate Bill 283.

Democratic state Senator Paul Wojno says he sponsored the bills after several people overdosed on opioids in libraries last winter. He says, “Should an incident arise they’ll be able to, under the good Samaritan law, treat the individual before the emergency personnel arrive on the scene.”
