“I applaud Florida Governor Charlie Crist for signing into law a measure that will significantly reduce the illegal prescription drug pipeline between his state and our Commonwealth. This important legislation will transcend borders, saving lives of both Kentuckians and Floridians.  For too long, Florida has been without a prescription drug monitoring system that allows health officials to prevent the practice of “doctor shopping.” The support of both Gov. Crist and the Florida state legislature for this law is a positive step towards stopping a drug epidemic in its tracks and moving the nation one step closer towards a national prescription drug monitoring program.”
