Executive Summary with Rationale and Impact:

Detailed description of the item and why we are doing it. This can be a separate attachment.

The purpose of this legislation is to expand upon Denver’s efforts to combat the opioid epidemic. This bill permits the operation of one supervised use site that will be registered and regulated by Department of Public Health and Environment. In order to qualify for registration: the supervised use site must be operated by a governmental or nonprofit organization; employees or volunteers of the supervised use site must be issued an identification card; the supervised use site must operate at least 1,000 feet from a school or licensed day care center; and operate in compliance with the board of public health and environment’s rules and regulations.

 

This bill also adds language to permit the possession of injection devices for individuals who participate in, or are an employee or volunteer of a qualified supervised use site.
