Lawmaker discusses ‘overdose immunity’ bill

SALT LAKE CITY — When someone overdoses on a drug, like heroin, sometimes they don’t get help–as those around them don’t call 911 or seek assistance out of a fear of legal repercussions. A bill being considered by the Utah legislature would address the issue by providing immunity from certain legal repercussions to those who report overdoses.

Rep. Carol Spackman Moss, D-District 37, is sponsoring the bill, and on Friday she came to the FOX 13 News studio to discuss the legislation. See the video above for her comments.
