U.S. Senator Joe Donnelly announced his support for bipartisan legislation that aims to help protect against the over medication of our nation’s veterans and prevent veteran suicide. The Veterans Overmedication Prevention Act, introduced by the Chairman of the Armed Services Committee, Senator John McCain (R-AZ), would commission an independent review of the deaths of veterans who died by suicide or drug overdose over the last five years while receiving care through the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and an assessment of the role that prescription medications may have played.
