Dear Legislator, 

My name is

arrow&v

I am part of a growing coalition of your constituents who are pleading for your support in fighting an epidemic that is destroying the families and neighborhoods – voters – in your district.

 

…We need the strength of your voice and the resolution of your actions in the 2020 Session to battle and win against the opioid epidemic in Connecticut.

 

 A friend whose family has been torn apart by opioids suggested I share a perspective with you so you may better weigh in on this epidemic. It’s just one situation of many happening in our community right now … and it’s mine:

There are so many other situations just like mine in your district. It’s why I, WE, need your leadership on this sweeping issue.

Your time is valuable and no doubt your plate is overflowing. If there’s one thing you do to prepare for and move on in the 2020 Session, I simply ask you to strongly consider taking the following action:

 

  • Review and support HB-135 (General Law), HB-5248 (Insurance), HB-5254 (Insurance), HB-5256 (Insurance), HB-5317 (Public Safety), HB-5318 (Public Safety), and SB-380, as well as a package of similar proposals that our coalition refers to as Brian Cody's Law.

 

  • Understand that Brian Cody's Law is sponsored by State Representative Bill Buckbee, from the sixty-seventh assembly district, who submitted a Proposed Bill Request form in January, 2020. It also has the support of several committee chairs, ranking members, and thousands of your constituents. 

 

  • Consider that Brian Cody’s Law calls for enhanced support systems to help those struggling with opioid addiction, stricter penalties for suppliers of lethal overdoses, better oversight of tracking opioids and waste, and ending safe havens – such as ‘trap houses’ where numerous overdoses occur on a frequent basis.

 

  • Please also consider that Brian Cody's law also calls for removing any barrier preventing those seeking treatment while expanding the guidelines, requirements, and methods currently in place with insurance provider and treatment centers.

 

 

In this last decade, 500,000 Americans lost their lives to opioid use disorder. In 2019 alone, right here in your state, overdose deaths hit historic levels.

 

In 2020 … in this upcoming Session… it’s your time to be counted and say NOW is the time for record-setting action that ends the opioid epidemic on the streets, neighborhoods, and in the family rooms of our great state.

 

Do we have your support?

Standing Unified in the battle against the opioid epidemic in Connecticut,
