Walker Calls Special Session to Combat Opioid Abuse


Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker on Wednesday called for a special session of the state Legislature to take up proposals designed to combat heroin and opioid abuse.

The call for a special session is one of three executive orders Walker will sign Wednesday at ceremonies throughout the state. The proposals come from a report released by Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch and Rep. John Nygren, R-Marinette, based on recommendations from the governor’s task force on opioid abuse.

“This is a public health crisis, and that’s why I’m calling a special session of the Legislature and directing state agencies to ramp up the state’s response,” Walker said in a statement.

We’ll see what comes out of it.
