Opioid Epidemic

The House passed this bill with 90% bipartisan support;
yet Representative Rabourn voted NO.


In an effort to combat the opioid epidemic, KY SB178 passed and will allow the Kentucky Board of Alcohol and Drug Counselors to adjust regulations to address the shortage of Alcohol and Drug Counselors in Kentucky. This bill also establishes standards of operation, monitoring and licensing requirements of treatment programs that use FDA approved buprenorphine products for the treatment of substance use disorder. Kimberly has working knowledge and experience in this field to know that there are several pathways of recovery and medicated treatment is one that has been proven effective. The House passed this bill with 90% bipartisan support; yet Representative Rabourn voted NO.

Our county jails are bursting at the seams because of this ongoing opioid epidemic and the enactment of KY SB90 will establish a pilot program to provide eligible individuals an alternative to receive treatment for substance abuse disorders instead of incarceration. This pilot program will include access to medical treatment, counseling, education, and vocational counseling and training; it also provides for tele-health services in county jails. We cannot expect change or reduced recidivism if we are not addressing the underlying behavioral health issue. The House passed this bill with 91% bipartisan support; yet Representative Rabourn voted NO.

 

Maternal and Infant Health

This bill passed the House with 94% bipartisan support;
yet Representative Rabourn voted NO.

Cytomegalovirus (CMV) is a common virus that once infected it remains in your body and there is no cure. Most people don't know they have CMV because it rarely causes problems in healthy people. Pregnant women who develop the infection can pass the virus to their newborns and most babies who have congenital CMV appear healthy at birth. However, some babies develop symptoms over time —The most common being hearing loss and developmental delay.

KY SB105 (aka) Bella Dawn Streeval Law was enacted into law and will allow screening for CMV be added as part of the newborn auditory tests which are already in place. It will also require the Cabinet for Health and Family Services to provide public educational resources related to CMV. This bill passed the House with 94% bipartisan support; yet Representative Rabourn voted NO.

 

EMS

Representative Rabourn voted NO.


The enactment of KY HB777 will create the Kentucky Board of Emergency Medical Services as an independent agency and change complaint investigations of ambulance services. This bill will require the board to publish a report; give the Cabinet for Health and Family Services access to all data; require the Cabinet to investigate and hold hearings on ambulance complaints. Kimberly personally knows the urgent need to track and improve EMS service delivery if we want to improve outcomes across the Commonwealth; especially as it pertains to heart related issues. Representative Rabourn voted NO.
