- The bipartisan Protecting Kids from Fentanyl Act was introduced by U.S. Reps. Joe Neguse, D-Colo., and Doug Lamborn, R-Colo., to reallocate unspent COVID-19 relief funds toward combatting the fentanyl crisis in schools.
- The proposed legislation would use the extra funds to buy naloxone, train teachers and administrators on how to use it to save lives, and educate students.
- In a statement, Rep. Neguse said the bill, “will empower our K-12 schools to tackle this emergency. Everyone – especially our children – deserve to live in a safe community, and this bill helps achieve that goal.”
