                          Purpose and Summary

    H.R. 4586, ``Lali's Law,'' was introduced by Rep. Bob Dold 
(R-IL) and Rep. Katherine Clark (D-MA) on February 23, 2016. 
This legislation amends the Public Health Service Act to 
authorize grants to states for developing standing orders and 
educating health care professionals regarding the dispensing of 
opioid overdose reversal medication without person-specific 
prescriptions.

                  Background and Need for Legislation

    In 1999, there were 6.1 overdose deaths per 100,000 
Americans involving opioid analgesics and heroin. By 2014, that 
number more than doubled to 14.7 overdose deaths. The rate of 
overdose for individuals aged 24 to 34 nearly tripled, going 
from 8.1 overdose deaths per 100,000 to 23.1 overdose 
deaths.\1\ Naloxone is an opioid antagonist that can prevent 
opioid overdose deaths by binding to the opioid receptors in 
the body and preventing the overdose. The World Health 
Organization estimated that if naloxone was more widely 
available in the United States, 20,000 overdose deaths could be 
prevented annually.\2\ This legislation is a first step in 
promoting wider access of naloxone or other opioid overdose 
reversal drugs that may come to market. Standing orders are 
prescriptions that are not person-specific. If a pharmacy has a 
standing order, anyone needing the medication may come and fill 
a prescription for it. Naloxone, while incredibly effective at 
stopping opioid overdose, does have severe side effects if used 
incorrectly or if used when not needed. Many states have 
standing order laws in place, but need help bridging the gap 
between law and a functioning program. The grants funded by 
this legislation will help aid that process.

         Statement of General Performance Goals and Objectives

    The goal of this legislation is to authorize grants to 
states for developing standing orders and educating health care 
professionals regarding the dispensing of opioid overdose 
reversal medication without person-specific prescriptions.

   New Budget Authority, Entitlement Authority, and Tax Expenditures

    In compliance with clause 3(c)(2) of rule XIII of the Rules 
of the House of Representatives, the Committee finds that H.R.

of the Rules of the House of Representatives, the Committee 
finds that H.R. 4586 contains no earmarks, limited tax 
benefits, or limited tariff benefits.

                        Committee Cost Estimate

    The Committee adopts as its own the cost estimate prepared 
by the Director of the Congressional Budget Office pursuant to 
section 402 of the Congressional Budget Act of 1974.

                  Congressional Budget Office Estimate

    Pursuant to clause 3(c)(3) of rule XIII of the Rules of the 
House of Representatives, the following is the cost estimate 
provided by the Congressional Budget Office pursuant to section 
402 of the Congressional Budget Act of 1974:

                                     U.S. Congress,
                               Congressional Budget Office,
                                       Washington, DC, May 9, 2016.
Hon. Fred Upton,
Chairman, Committee on Energy and Commerce,
House of Representatives, Washington, DC.
    Dear Mr. Chairman: The Congressional Budget Office has 
prepared the enclosed cost estimate for H.R. 4586, Lali's Law.
    If you wish further details on this estimate, we will be 
pleased to provide them. The CBO staff contact is Rebecca Yip.
            Sincerely,
                                                        Keith Hall.
    Enclosure.

H.R. 4586--Lali's Law

    H.R. 4586 would allow the Centers for Disease Control and 
Prevention (CDC) to provide grants to states to enable and 
encourage pharmacies to dispense medications that reverse 
opioid overdoses pursuant to a standing order. A standing order 
is a prescription that permits another person to acquire, 
dispense, or administer medication without the prescription 
specifying who will be treated with the medication. The grants 
would be limited to $500,000 per state. The bill also would 
allow states to use the grant funds to implement best practices 
and to develop training materials on the purpose, 
administration, and availability of those medications. H.R. 
4586 would authorize the appropriation of a total of $5 million 
of fiscal years 2017 through 2019 to carry out these 
activities. Assuming the availability of appropriated funds, 
CBO estimates those funds would be spent over the 2017-2021 
period.
    Under current law, an authorization of appropriations 
totaling $138 million exists for 2017 for CDC for activities 
related to bioterrorism and public health emergencies. H.R. 
4586 would reduce the amount authorized by $5 million in 2017. 
Assuming appropriation actions consistent with the bill, CBO 
estimates that implementing this provision would result in $5 
million less in discretionary outlays for that program over the 
2017-2021 period.
    On net, CBO estimates that implementing H.R. 4586 would not 
affect discretionary costs over the 2017-2021 period. Enacting 
H.R. 4586 would not affect direct spending or revenues; 
therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply. CBO estimates 
that enacting H.R. 4586 would not increase net direct spending 
or on-budget deficits in any of the four consecutive 10-year 
periods beginning in 2027.
    H.R. 4586 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector 
mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act. Any 
costs incurred by states that apply for grants authorized by 
the bill would be incurred voluntarily as a condition of 
assistance.
    The CBO staff contact for this estimate is Rebecca Yip. The 
estimate was approved by Holly Harvey, Deputy Assistant 
Director for Budget Analysis.

                       Federal Mandates Statement

    The Committee adopts as its own the estimate of Federal 
mandates prepared by the Director of the Congressional Budget 
Office pursuant to section 423 of the Unfunded Mandates Reform 
Act.

                    Duplication of Federal Programs

    No provision of H.R. 4586 establishes or reauthorizes a 
program of the Federal Government known to be duplicative of 
another Federal program, a program that was included in any 
report from the Government Accountability Office to Congress 
pursuant to section 21 of Public Law 111-139, or a program 
related to a program identified in the most recent Catalog of 
Federal Domestic Assistance.

                  Disclosure of Directed Rule Makings

    The Committee estimates that enacting H.R. 4586 
specifically directs to be completed 0 rule makings within the 
meaning of 5 U.S.C. 551.

                      Advisory Committee Statement

    No advisory committees within the meaning of section 5(b) 
of the Federal Advisory Committee Act were created by this 
legislation.

                  Applicability to Legislative Branch

    The Committee finds that the legislation does not relate to 
the terms and conditions of employment or access to public 
services or accommodations within the meaning of section 
102(b)(3) of the Congressional Accountability Act.

             Section-by-Section Analysis of the Legislation


Section 1. Short title

    Section 1 states that the legislation may be cited as 
``Lali's Law.''

Section 2. Opioid overdose reversal medication access and education 
        grant programs

    Under section 2, the Secretary of Health and Human Services 
is authorized to make grants for: developing standing orders 
for pharmacies regarding opioid overdose reversal medication; 
encouraging pharmacies to dispense opioid overdose reversal 
medication pursuant to a standing order; implementing best 
practices; and developing or adapting training materials.
    Grantees must report on a number of metrics including: the 
name and ZIP codes of each pharmacy dispensing opioid overdose 
reversal drugs under a standing order, the total number of 
opioid overdose reversal medication doses dispensed by each 
pharmacy, and the number of pharmacists in the State who have 
participated in training also funded by the grant.
    Finally, this section authorizes an appropriation of $5 
million over the period of fiscal years 2017 through 2019.

Section 3. Cut-go compliance

    Section 3 reduces the authorization of Section 319D of the 
Public Health Service Act for $5,000,000 for fiscal year 2017 
to bring the legislation into compliance with Cut-Go. This 
reduction in authorization is equal to the authorization of 
appropriations in section 2.

        Disease Control and Prevention has an essential role in 
        defending against and combatting public health threats 
        domestically and abroad and requires secure and modern 
        facilities, and expanded and improved capabilities 
        related to bioterrorism and other public health 
        emergencies, sufficient to enable such Centers to 
        conduct this important mission.
          (2) Facilities.--
                  (A) In general.--The Director of the Centers 
                for Disease Control and Prevention may design,

                communication facilities, transshipment 
                complexes, secured and isolated parking 
                structures, office buildings, and other 
                facilities and infrastructure), and upgrade 
                security of such facilities, in order to better 
                conduct the capacities described in section 
                319A, and for supporting public health 
                activities.

            [Part E--Narcotic Addicts and Other Drug Abusers


                          [care and treatment

  [Sec. 341. (a) The Surgeon General is authorized to provide 
for the confinement, care, protection, treatment, and 
discipline of persons addicted to the use of habit-forming 
narcotic drugs who are civilly committed to treatment under the 
Narcotic Addict Rehabilitation Act of 1966, addicts and other 
persons with drug abuse and drug dependence problems who 
voluntarily submit themselves for treatment, and addicts 
convicted of offenses against the United States, including 
persons convicted by general courts-martial and consular 
courts. Such care and treatment shall be provided at hospitals 
of the Service especially equipped for the accommodation of 
such patients or elsewhere where authorized under other 
provisions of law, and shall be designed to rehabilitate such 
persons, to restore them to health, and, where necessary, to 
train them to be self-supporting and self-reliant; but nothing 
in this section or in this part shall be construed to limit the 
authority of the Surgeon General under other provisions of law 
to provide for the conditional release of patients and for 
aftercare under supervision. In carrying out this subsection, 
the Secretary shall establish in each hospital and other 
appropriate medical facility of the Service a treatment and 
rehabilitation program for drug addicts and other persons with 
drug abuse and drug dependence problems who are in the area 
served by such hospital or other facility; except that the 
requirement of this sentence shall not apply in the case of any 
such hospital or other facility with respect to which the 
Secretary determines that there is not sufficient need for such 
a program in such hospital or other facility.
  [(b) Upon the admittance to, and departure from, a hospital 
of the Service of a person who voluntarily submitted himself 
for treatment pursuant to the provisions of this section, and 
who at the time of his admittance to such hospital was a 
resident of the District of Columbia, the Surgeon General shall 
furnish to the Commissioners of the District of Columbia or 
their designated agent, the name, address, and such other 
pertinent information as may be useful in the rehabilitation to 
society of such person.
  [(c) The Secretary may enter into agreements with the 
Secretary of Veterans Affairs, the Secretary of Defense, and 
the head of any other department or agency of the Government 
under which agreements hospitals and other appropriate medical 
facilities of the Service may be used in treatment and 
rehabilitation programs provided by such department or agency 
for drug addicts and other persons with drug abuse and other 
drug dependence problems who are in areas served by such 
hospitals or other facilities.

   [employment of addicts or other persons with drug abuse and drug 
                          dependence problems

  [Sec. 342. Narcotic addicts or other persons with drug abuse 
and drug dependence problems in hospitals of the Service 
designated for their care shall be employed in such manner and 
under such conditions as the Surgeon General may direct. In 
such hospitals the Surgeon General may, in his discretion, 
establish industries, plants, factories, or shops for the 
production and manufacture of articles, commodities, and 
supplies for the United States Government. The Secretary of the 
Treasury may require any Government department, establishment, 
or other institution, for whom appropriations are made directly 
or indirectly by the Congress of the United States, to purchase 
at current market prices, as determined by him or his 
authorized representative, such of the articles, commodities, 
or supplies so produced or manufactured as meet their 
specifications; and the Surgeon General shall provide for 
payment to the inmates or their dependents of such pecuniary 
earnings as he may deem proper. The Secretary shall establish a 
working-capital fund for such industries, plants, factories, 
and shops out of any funds appropriated for Public Health 
Service hospitals at which addicts or other persons with drug 
abuse and drug dependence problems are treated and cared for; 
and such fund shall be available for the purchase, repair, or 
replacement of machinery or equipment, for the purchase of raw 
materials and supplies, for the purchase of uniforms and other 
distinctive wearing apparel of employees in the performance of 
their official duties, and for the employment of necessary 
civilian officers and employees. The Surgeon General may 
provide for the disposal of products of the industrial 
activities conducted pursuant to this section, and the proceeds 
of any sales thereof shall be covered into the Treasury of the 
United States to the credit of the working-capital fund.

                               [convicts

  [Sec. 343. (a) The authority vested with the power to 
designate the place of confinement of a prisoner shall transfer 
to hospitals of the Service especially equipped for the 
accommodation of addicts or other persons with drug abuse and 
drug dependence problems, if accommodations are available, all 
addicts or other persons with drug abuse and drug dependence 
problems who have been or are hereafter sentenced to 
confinement, or who are now or shall hereafter be confined, in 
any penal, correctional, disciplinary, or reformatory 
institution of the United States, including those addicts or 
other persons with drug abuse and drug dependence problems 
convicted of offenses against the United States who are 
confined in State and Territorial prisons, penitentiaries, and 
reformatories, except that no addict or other person with a 
drug abuse or other drug dependence problem shall be 
transferred to a hospital of the Service who, in the opinion of 
the officer authorized to direct the transfer, is not a proper 
subject for confinement in such an institution either because 
of the nature of the crime he has committed or because of his 
apparent incorrigibility. The authority vested with the power 
to designate the place of confinement of a prisoner shall 
transfer from a hospital of the Service to the institution from 
which he was received, or to such other institution as may be 
designated by the proper authority, any addict or other person 
with a drug abuse or other drug dependence problem whose 
presence at a hospital of the Service is detrimental to the 
well-being of the hospital or who does not continue to be a 
narcotic addict or other person with a drug abuse or other drug 
dependence problem. All transfers of such prisoners to or from 
a hospital of the Service shall be accompanied by necessary 
attendants as directed by the officer in charge of such 
hospital and the actual and necessary expenses incident to such 
transfers shall be paid from the appropriation for the 
maintenance of such Service hospital except to the extent that 
other Federal agencies are authorized or required by law to pay 
expenses incident to such transfers. When sentence is 
pronounced against any person whom the prosecuting officer 
believes to be an addict or other person with a drug abuse or 
other drug dependence problem such officer shall report to the 
authority vested with the power to designate the place of 
confinement, the name of such person, the reasons for his 
belief, all pertinent facts bearing on such addiction, drug 
abuse, or drug dependence and the nature of the offense 
committed. Whenever an alien addict or other person with a drug 
abuse or other drug dependence problem transferred to a Service 
hospital pursuant to this subsection is entitled to his 
discharge but is subject to deportation, in lieu of being 
returned to the penal institution from which he came he shall 
be deported by the authority vested by law with power over 
deportation.
  [(c) Not later than one month prior to the expiration of the 
sentence of any addict or other person with a drug abuse or 
other drug dependence problem confined in a Service hospital, 
he shall be examined by the Surgeon General or his authorized 
representative. If the Surgeon General believes the person to 
be discharged is still an addict or other person with a drug 
abuse or other drug dependence problem and that he may by 
further treatment in a Service hospital be cured of his 
addiction, drug abuse, or drug dependence the addict or other 
person with a drug abuse or other drug dependence problem shall 
be informed, in accordance with regulations, of the 
advisability of his submitting himself to further treatment. 
The addict or other person with a drug abuse or other drug 
dependence problem may then apply in writing to the Surgeon 
General for further treatment in a Service hospital for a 
period not exceeding the maximum length of time considered 
necessary by the Surgeon General. Upon approval of the 
application by the Surgeon General or his authorized agent, the 
addict or other person with a drug abuse or other drug 
dependence problem may be given such further treatment as is 
necessary to cure him of his addiction, drug abuse, or drug 
dependence.
  [(d) Every person convicted of an offense against the United 
States, upon discharge, or upon release on parole or supervised 
release from a hospital of the Service, shall be furnished with 
the gratuities and transportation authorized by law to be 
furnished to prisoners upon release from a penal, correctional, 
disciplinary, or reformatory institution.
  [(e) Any court of the United States having the power to 
suspend the imposition or execution of sentence and to place a 
defendant on probation under any existing laws may impose as 
one of the conditions of such probation that the defendant, if 
an addict, or other person with a drug abuse or other drug 
dependence problem shall submit himself for treatment at a 
hospital of the Service especially equipped for the 
accommodation of addicts or other persons with drug abuse and 
drug dependence problems until discharged therefrom as cured 
and that he shall be admitted thereto for such purpose. Upon 
the discharge of any such probationer from a hospital of the 
Service, he shall be furnished with the gratuities and 
transportation authorized by law to be furnished to prisoners 
upon release from a penal, correctional, disciplinary, or 
reformatory institution. The actual and necessary expense 
incident to transporting such probationer to such hospital and 
to furnishing such transportation and gratuities shall be paid 
from the appropriation for the maintenance of such hospital 
except to the extent that other Federal agencies are authorized 
or required by law to pay the cost of such transportation: 
Provided, That where existing law vests a discretion in any 
officer as to the place to which transportation shall be 
furnished or as to the amount of clothing and gratuities to be 
furnished, such discretion shall be exercised by the Surgeon 
General with respect to addicts or other persons with drug 
abuse and drug dependence problems discharged from hospitals of 
the Service.

                          [voluntary patients

  [Sec. 344. (a) Any addict, or other person with a drug abuse 
or other drug dependence problem whether or not he shall have 
been convicted of an offense against the United States, may 
apply to the Surgeon General for admission to a hospital of the 
Service especially equipped for the accommodation of addicts or 
other persons with drug abuse and drug dependence problems.
  [(b) Any applicant shall be examined by the Surgeon General 
who shall determine whether the applicant is an addict, or 
other person with a drug abuse or other drug dependence problem 
whether by treatment in a hospital of the Service he may 
probably be cured of his addiction, drug abuse, or drug 
dependence and the estimated length of time necessary to effect 
his cure. The Surgeon General may, in his discretion, admit the 
applicant to a Service hospital. No such addict or other person 
with drug abuse or other drug dependence problem shall be 
admitted unless he agrees to submit to treatment for the 
maximum amount of time estimated by the Surgeon General to be 
necessary to effect a cure, and unless suitable accommodations 
are available after all eligible addicts or other persons with 
drug abuse and drug dependence problems convicted of offenses 
against the United States have been admitted. Any such addict 
or other person with a drug abuse or other drug dependence 
problem may be required to pay for his subsistence, care, and 
treatment at rates fixed by the Surgeon General and amounts so 
paid shall be covered into the Treasury of the United States to 
the credit of the appropriation from which the expenditure for 
his subsistence, care, and treatment was made. Appropriations 
available for the care and treatment of addicts or other 
persons with drug abuse and drug dependence problems admitted 
to a hospital of the Service under this section shall be 
available, subject to regulations, for paying the cost of 
transportation to any place within the continental United 
States, including subsistence allowance while traveling, for 
any indigent addict or other person with a drug abuse or other 
drug dependence problem who is discharged as cured.
  [(c) Any addict or other person with a drug abuse or other 
drug dependence problem admitted for treatment under this 
section, including any addict, or other person with a drug 
abuse or other drug dependence problem not convicted of an 
offense, who voluntarily submits himself for treatment, may be 
confined in a hospital of the Service for a period not 
exceeding the maximum amount of time estimated by the Surgeon 
General as necessary to effect a cure of the addiction, drug 
abuse, or drug dependence or until such time as he ceases to be 
an addict or other person with a drug abuse or other drug 
dependence problem.
  [(d) Any addict or other person with a drug abuse or other 
drug dependence problem admitted for treatment under this 
section shall not thereby forfeit or abridge any of his rights 
as a citizen of the United States; nor shall such admission or 
treatment be used against him in any proceeding in any court; 
and the record of his voluntary commitment shall, except as 
otherwise provided by this Act, be confidential and shall not 
be divulged.

who is committed, under the provisions of the Act of June 24, 
1953 (Public Law 76, Eighty-third Congress), to the Service or

Surgeon General shall give notice thereof to the Superior Court 
of the District of Columbia and shall deliver such person to 
such court for such further action as such court may deem 
necessary and proper under the provisions of the Act of June 
24, 1953 (Public Law 76, Eighty-third Congress).
  [(c) With respect to the detention, transfer, parole, or 
discharge of any person committed to a hospital of the Service 
in accordance with subsection (a), the Surgeon General and the 
officer in charge of the hospital, in addition to authority 
otherwise vested in them, shall have such authority as may be 
conferred upon them, respectively, by the order of the

by the Surgeon General. Such cost may be determined for each 
addict or on the basis of rates established for all or 
particular classes of patients, and shall include the cost of 
transportation to and from facilities of the Public Health 
Service. Moneys so paid to the Public Health Service shall be 
covered into the Treasury of the United States as miscellaneous 
receipts. Appropriations available for the care and treatment
