Missouri Representative Chris Dinkins To Vote For PDMP Bill

The state of Missouri remains the only state in the US without a Prescription Drug Monitoring Program, which has prompted the PDMP bill that is set for a final vote in the Missouri House this week before being sent to the state Senate.

Republican Representative Chris Dinkins of District 144 says a lack of a PDMP bill in the state has forced many counties into adopting their own version.

Dinkins says she sees the bill as more of first step than a cure-all in the fight against the opiod epidemic.

Despite also citing some privacy issues she has with the bill, ultimately the Republican will be voting for the measure.
