Bill has Attorney General Watching Prescriptions

House Speaker Greg Stumbo hopes to crack down on doctors who over prescribe pain medications by moving the statewide prescription monitoring system to a law-enforcement agency. Stumbo, D-Prestonsburg, said Wednesday that he soon would file a bill to transfer the state's Kentucky All Schedule Prescription Electronic Reporting System, known as KASPER, from the Cabinet for Health and Family Services to Attorney General Jack Conway's office.
