St. Rep. Lance Yednock has added his name as a sponsor to a resolution to urge the Illinois Department of Public Health to do something about painkiller addictions.

Speaking through the Illinois House Democrats press office, Yednock says opioid addiction doesn’t discriminate and so legislators shouldn’t either in coming together to fight it.

The bill, introduced in the last week of January, went to the House Prescription Drug Affordability and Accessibility Committee last week. It doesn’t tell the Department of Public Health to do anything specific, just to come up with new opioid prescription guidelines.
