Opioid overdoses are now the leading cause of accidental death in Ohio. The destructive new influence of fentanyl is just one more indicator that we as a state must engage in an all-out attack on the opiate epidemic in Ohio. We can't sit idly by while opiate addiction attacks the health of individuals, undermines the strength of families and unravels the fabric of entire communities. We must act immediately and decisively.

This past year, I had the opportunity to oversee the passage of Senate Bill 129 out of the Senate Insurance committee. This legislation, sponsored by my colleagues Senators Randy Gardner (R-Bowling Green) and Capri Cafaro (D-Hubbard) makes several important changes to how prior authorization is handled by health insurers.
