This year, APNC honors State Representative Timothy Reeder, MD, and State Senator Bobby Hanig for their outstanding bipartisan efforts. Representative Reeder is the lead sponsor of H415 (Session Law 2023-141), also known as the SAFE Act that makes Patient Brokering a Class G felony in North Carolina. Senator Hanig is the lead sponsor of S458, the proposed expansion of the Good Samaritan Law. Both legislators have exemplified the importance of cooperative legislation in advancing addiction-related public policy. This type of bipartisan legislation is precisely what we need to help create a safer, healthier North Carolina.
