Local lawmaker's anti-meth bill passes House
Smiddy behind bill that could provide tool in anti-drug fight
SPRINGFIELD – An anti-drug bill sponsored by a local lawmaker passed the House unanimously this week.
Rep. Mike Smiddy, D-Hillsdale, who represents Whiteside County, was one of eight House sponsors of the bill. It would increase the ability of law enforcement to examine the distribution records of pharmacies and their employees to prevent substances like Sudafed from being used to make illegal drugs.
The bill adds the Department of Corrections, the U.S. Probation and Pretrial Services System, the U.S. Parole Commission, and any authorized probation and court services department to the list of agencies that may investigate violations of methamphetamine precursors such as Sudafed.
