Senators Manchin (D-WV) and Scott (R-SC) officially launched the Senate Prescription Drug Abuse Caucus. The effort is the latest activity to raise awareness surrounding the damage being caused by prescription drug abuse. The new Caucus pledges to engage stakeholders to find innovative and effective policy solutions to address the issue and notes that, “With 46 Americans dying every day from an overdose on prescription opioids, the US Senate must act.”
