The Colorado Senate Health and Human Services Committee today voted unanimously to advance HB19-1077, Pharmacist Dispense Drug Without Prescription in Emergency, a bill that would allow a pharmacist to provide a lifesaving drug without a prescription in an emergency situation. The bill, sponsored by Senator Brittany Pettersen in the Senate and Representative Dylan Roberts in the House, now heads to the committee of the whole for consideration on the consent calendar.

“In emergencies, a patient’s medical needs should always come first. I’m proud to support a bill that helps Coloradans get the lifesaving medication they need in an emergency situation,” said Senator Pettersen. “This bill will allow pharmacists the flexibility they need to dispense an emergency supply of medication to Coloradans facing a potentially deadly health crisis.”

HB19-1077 has bipartisan sponsorship in the Senate and unanimously passed the Colorado House of Representatives on third reading on January 28, 2019.
