Yesterday, the New York State Senate took another step towards combatting the ever-growing heroin and opioid epidemic by passing “Laree’s Law.”  The bill (S2761), would allow law enforcement officials to charge a drug dealer with homicide if the sale of heroin or an opioid-controlled substance results in death.

“Excelsior is New York’s motto. It should stand for a higher and better quality of life not higher and more taxes and regulations to burden New Yorkers!”

“We’ve lost over one million people since 2010 – 190,000 people escaped from New York in just the last year. The fiscally sane state budget resolution my Senate colleagues are advancing as we enter negotiations with the Governor and the Assembly aims to stop the tax madness and ensure the Empire State doesn’t become known as the ‘Empty State.”
