Kentucky lawmakers and Governor Steve Beshear are applauding the passage of a bill aimed at reducing prescription pill abuse.
Beshear signed the Pill Mill Bill today, inviting key legislators and law enforcement officers to take part in the ceremony.
The new law isn’t as tough as some had hoped. But House Speaker Greg Stumbo says changes can always be made later.
“And I would have obviously preferred something stronger, but it is a step in the right direction and if it doesn’t work we can always come back and do something to amend it later,” Stumbo says.
