FEND Off Fentanyl Act is included in the Senate's defense bill

The FEND Off Fentanyl Act, introduced by Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) was just made part of the NDAA currently on the Senator floor.

Sheriff Jim Skinner, Collin County, Texas stated "Sheriffs across the country see the devastation that fentanyl is wreaking on our communities. We praise Senators Brown and Scott, Reed and Wicker for their leadership and for this legislation that would help stop the flow of this deadly drug. Further, it is our sincere wish that the full U.S. Senate take up the bill after today's markup. Congress needs to take swift action and give our communities and law enforcement some relief.
