A message from US Senator Todd Young <outreach.senate.gov/iqextranet/Customers/SenYoung/Todd_Young_Ba nner_logo2.png> A message for my colleagues, inspired by Hoosiers I delivered my first speech on the floor of the Senate this past week. It took the idea of "Hoosier common sense" and tied it to the mission of working towards the "common good" of Hoosiers and all Americans.

A simple conversation can have the ability to make a huge difference in the opioid epidemic that is plaguing many communities in Indiana and around the country. This proposal would offer doctors better information about the risks of addiction and encourage them to communicate that information with their patients. That's a conversation worth having.

Continuing to fight the opioid epidemic

I introduced a proposal with Senator Hassan of New Hampshire to improve the education process around “abuse-deterrent” opioids.

A simple conversation can have the ability to make a huge difference in the opioid epidemic that is plaguing many communities in Indiana and around the country. This proposal would offer doctors better information about the risks of addiction and encourage them to communicate that information with their patients. That’s a conversation worth having. Find out more about the legislation here.
