Kentucky Senate Delays Bill Requiring Pain Management Clinics to be Owned, Operated by Certified Physicians

A panel in the Kentucky Senate has delayed a vote on a bill that would require pain management clinics to be owned and operated by physicians licensed in Kentucky and be certified in pain management, according to a report.

Republican Sen. Jimmy Higdon of Lebanon, Ky., has said more people die of drug overdoses than car accidents in Kentucky and the legislation needs to be passed to establish that pill mills aren't welcome in Kentucky.
