Subject: Prescription Drugs- Automatic Scheduling Changes
I will be re-introducing legislation, SB 563, specifically targeting the growing problem of prescription drug diversion.

This legislation implements automatic scheduling changes for controlled substances in Pennsylvania in coordination with a proposed federal scheduling change. Automatic scheduling would occur sixty days after such change occurs on the federal level. This legislation would eliminate the very lengthy regulatory process that occurs at the state level once a drug is deemed as an abuse threat by the federal government.

Introduced as SB466
