LANSING, Mich. — Sen. Dale Zorn, R-Ida, and his wife Cindy (left) joined Lenawee Community Mental Health Authority Chief Operating Officer April Demers (right) and her daughter Cait Corie on Wednesday as Lt. Gov. Brian Calley signed Zorn’s legislation to help combat the state’s growing opioid addiction epidemic.

Senate Bill 47, now Public Act 252 of 2017, requires increased use by prescribers and dispensers of the Michigan Automated Prescription System (MAPS), a state-run program that tracks patients and prescribers for over-supply of Schedule 2 through Schedule 5 controlled substances.

Zorn’s legislation is part of a bipartisan package of bills that are now PAs 246-255 of 2017.
