Buddy Carter, R-GA
"I thank the gentleman for yielding, and I thank him for his long-time support of these types of issues, both as a member of the Georgia State legislature and as a Member of this august body. Representative Collins has consistently and very diligently worked on these issues. As the son of a law enforcement officer, he understands all too well the importance of making sure that our communities are safe, and I thank him for his support of this."
Comprehensive Opioid Abuse Reduction Act Of 2016 May 12, 2016
Buddy Carter, R-GA
"As a lifelong pharmacist and as the author of the Georgia Prescription Drug Monitoring Program while I was a member of the Georgia General Assembly, I believe PDMPs are one of the most important tools in the fight against prescription drug abuse. To increase the success of these programs throughout the country, interoperability and data sharing between States is paramount."
Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 4641, Establishing Pain Management Best Practices Inter-Agency Task Force, And Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 5046, Comprehensive Opioid Abuse Reduction Act… May 11, 2016
Rick Allen, R-GA
"Unfortunately, my home State of Georgia is not immune to this growing epidemic. According to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, in 2012, prescription drugs played a role in 592 deaths in 152 of the 159 counties in Georgia for which it performs autopsies."
Combating The Heroin And Opioid Epidemic May 10, 2016
Buddy Carter, R-GA
"In addition, I was the cosponsor in the Georgia General Assembly when the Georgia Prescription Drug Monitoring Program was created. I believe that PDMPs are one of the most important tools in the fight against prescription drug abuse. As a pharmacist, I experienced several customers who would walk into my store with an out-of-State driver’s license. As you can imagine, I was a little hesitant to fill a prescription of someone who has a Kentucky driver’s license when my store is in south Georgia."
Energy And Water Development Appropriations Bill May 9, 2016
Lamar Alexander, R-TN
"Senator Shelby, from Alabama, is highly stirred up about what we call the Georgia-Florida-Alabama water wars. He would like to have his amendment to resolve that problem on this bill, but he has stepped back from that on this bill and allowed us to move ahead with it."
