Oklahoma City, Oklahoma —
Roberts said House Bill 2802 provides a compromise alternative.
“If you live in the western half of the state where meth crimes have not been a big problem, your local government won’t need to require a prescription for pseudoephedrine products in your community,” Roberts said. “But if you live in an area overrun with meth labs, you will now have the ability to do something about it.”
House Bill 2802 is scheduled for a vote in the House Public Health Committee next Tuesday, February 28. Roberts urged citizens who support the measure to contact their state representatives and senators.
“Meth crimes are taking a real toll on our state. Tulsa County District Attorney Tim Harris has predicted our overall crime rate would plunge up to 30 percent if we take this one simple step,” Roberts said. “These criminals are destroying lives and crippling economic opportunity. It’s time we became more aggressive fighting them.”
