Pennsylvania Governor, Lawmakers Agree to Hold a Special Session
Gov. Tom Wolf and lawmakers have agreed a special session is necessary to confront the growing problem of prescription drug abuse and illegal opioids.
Last year, 3,300 people died in Pennsylvania, and this year the number is expected to grow.
The session will focus on creating a comprehensive approach to treating those with substance abuse disorders, including alternatives to prison. No date has been set for the special session, but it is expected to be this fall.
