HB 213, sponsored by House Judiciary Committee Chair John Tilley (D-Hopkinsville) and Representative Joni Jenkins (D-Shively), would use treatment and incarceration to reduce the devastating effects of the heroin problem in Kentucky. Kentucky had 230 overdose deaths in 2013, up from 22 in 2011. SB 5 is the Senate version to deal with the heroin problem. Each body is taking up the other House’s version of the bill.
