SPRINGFIELD - State Senator Melinda Bush (D-Grayslake) is working to combat one of the biggest threats to the Lake County community – increased heroin use by young adults.
On Wednesday, she attended the first meeting of the Young Adult Heroin Use Task Force, a bipartisan group of General Assembly members and stakeholders who seek legislative solutions to a dangerous problem facing Illinois teens.
“Heroin use has been a problem for a very long time.” Senator Bush said. “But sharp increases in heroin use and heroin-related deaths have shaken up lawmakers. It’s our hope that this task force will shed some light on real solutions.”
