House Committee Makes Changes to Meth Bill

The House Judiciary Committee passed a bill passed the meth bill out of committee last night, but made some changes first. The Senate had passed a measure requiring prescriptions for products containing pseudoephedrine, and the House Judiciary changed the bill so that those who have been convicted of a drug related felony would have to get a prescription for those cold medicines, the rest of the public would not. An amendment was also passed that would lower the overall amount of pseudoephedrine you can buy each year. The bill now goes back to the Senate.
