MADISON, WI (AP)-- The Wisconsin state Senate has passed four bills designed to combat heroin use and help those who are addicted.
The bills approved Tuesday have all previously passed unanimously in the Assembly. They now head to Governor Scott Walker for his consideration.
One proposal would permit all emergency responders with training to administer Narcan, a drug that counteracts heroin overdoses.
Another would guarantee a measure of immunity for anyone who calls 911 to report an overdose.
