"The House is scheduled to vote on a dozen or more bills related to heroin and prescription opioid abuse during the week of May 9, leading some to dub this week 'Opioid Week' in the House. This report briefly summarizes opioid-related bills that are scheduled for consideration during 'Opioid Week.' The brief summaries in this report may be useful illustrations of the range of approaches Members of Congress have proposed to address the problem of opioid addiction."
