Gov. Tony Evers has signed three bills designed to curb opioid use in Wisconsin.
The governor signed the legislation Wednesday morning at the La Crosse Lighthouse, an addiction rehabilitation facility off Highway 16.
Such strips are classified as drug paraphernalia under current state law. The third bill calls for the creation of a state database tracking methamphetamine and opioid use.
The governor was joined by two area legislators, Jill Billings of La Crosse and Jesse James of the Eau Claire area, along with Department of Health Services secretary designee Karen Timberlake.
