Sen. Julie Rosen, R-Vernon Center, was not too long ago named the Minnesota Association of Resources for Recovery and Chemical Health 2019 Legislator of the Year for her work on opioids, psychological health and different points over the previous 12 months.
“This award is an incredible honor,” Rosen stated in an announcement. “It has been a collaborative effort and we have made a lot of progress, but we also know there is still so much more to do.”
Rosen championed the bundle of payments addressing opioid abuse in Minnesota, which incorporates $20 million in charges to pharmaceutical producers and distributors to assist pay for therapy and prevention packages. She can also be the lead sponsor on an omnibus psychological health invoice within the Senate.
