Vt. House advances measures to stem drug abuse

Posted: Updated:
MONTPELIER, Vt. -

Preliminary approval in the Vermont House Thursday for two measures aimed at stopping opiate and meth abuse.

The House bills tie together about a dozen bills introduced earlier this year. They deal with monitoring ingredients used for making meth, lab cleanup and immunity for reporting overdose cases, among other issues. One measure passed by voice vote and the other by a margin of 137-1.

House Speaker Shap Smith will hold a press conference Friday.
