***MEDIA ADVISORY*** Law Enforcement, Local Elected Officials, and Lawmakers to Announce Taking Fentanyl Crisis Legislation to the Voters

Initiative Will Let the Voters Speak on How to Combat Fentanyl Crisis 

SACRAMENTO – Law enforcement, local elected officials, and lawmakers will join together at the State Capitol to announce a state constitutional amendment that will take Alexandra’s Law to California voters and let them have their voice heard on how the state should handle the fentanyl epidemic that is taking the lives of 110 Californians each week.

We need to bolster our approach to combatting the deadly fentanyl epidemic! While the Legislature passed education- and treatment-focused bills this week, there needs to be a multi-pronged approach to get fentanyl off our streets. Lawmakers in the Assembly and the Senate will be joined by the people fighting on the front lines of the fentanyl crisis calling for traffickers to be held accountable with harsher penalties for poisoning our communities. Alexandra’s law will allow repeat fentanyl dealers to be charged with homicide if their actions result in a poisoning death.
