State Representatives Jim Ananich (D-Flint) and Joel Johnson (R-Clare) will join members of the local prescription drug task force in announcing a bi-partisan legislative package to help keep unused and expired prescription drugs off the streets and out of the environment.

The bills will allow the redistribution of medical supplies among health providers, require the proper disposal of drugs and enact other steps to ensure medical supplies have been safely transported and stored.

In a statement, Ananich said "we are fortunate to have many concerned parents and local leaders working to raise awareness of the dangers of prescription drug misuse. Our goal is to provide more tools for them to help protect our kids and our environment."

The announcement Monday, October 10 at 2 p.m. at the Swartz Creek Administration Building.
