Statement by Assemblymember Eggman on Assembly Bill 186
SACRAMENTO - Tonight I decided with my dedicated coauthors, Assemblymember Laura Friedman and Senators Scott Wiener and Ricardo Lara, that I would not bring Assembly Bill 186 up for another vote prior to the end of session. We have made incredible progress on this life-saving policy, from not getting a vote in policy committee last year all the way to the Senate floor. While I am disappointed that the bill will not pass at this time, I am committed to finding a way forward next year. The opioid epidemic continues and new solutions are desperately needed.
