LEGISLATIVE UPDATE July 9, 2018

The U.S. Congress returns today from its July 4th recess, and the U.S. Senate will begin its
process of “unbundling” the 57+ House bills on the opioid crisis that were consolidated
into H.R. 6 (“Patients and Communities Act”).

Politics played a key role in the decision by House Speaker Ryan to rush the package of
bills on the opioid crisis out of the House so the Republicans, who control the U.S.
House, can claim they have acted to combat the epidemic of deaths from the opioid crisis.

Politics will now flip that strategy on its head in the Senate where Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch

McConnell will likely wait until November to consider any of these opioid bills – so that the roughly 12
vulnerable Democrats in hard-hit states like West Virginia will not be able to claim a “yes” vote on opioid
legislation.

This delay actually works in our favor because it provides more time to educate members of the Senate on the truth about kratom, and that time will work in our favor.

***Please be aware that there is a type in this section ...

"Michigan: Senator Jones, in response to a request from the Michigan Prosecutors Association, plans to file legislation to ban kratom in Michigan. Senator Jones has agreed to a meeting on June 24 to hear our position, and we are grateful for his willingness to accept this meeting."

The date should be JULY 24th.
