Bill to treat drug-addicted newborns passes U.S. House

BOSTON- U.S. Rep. Katherine Clark, a Massachusetts Democrat, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, a Kentucky Republican, have little in common politically.

But the two teamed up to sponsor a bill aimed at improving treatment for newborns whose mothers were addicted to opioids. The bill, The Protecting Our Infants Act of 2015 (H.R. 1462), passed the U.S. House unanimously on Tuesday. It has not passed the Senate.
"Unfortunately, our states share a common and tragic bond in that we are both seeing the devastation of the opiate crisis in Kentucky and Massachusetts," Clark said in a phone interview with The Republican/ from Washington, D.C.
The bill does not come with any federal money attached to it. It directs the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to identify best practices for diagnosing and treating Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome, coordinate federal research efforts and help state agencies with data collection.

The best practices could then be shared with hospitals, doctors and families nationwide.
