HB 1145 Summary
Establishes a legislative oversight committee to examine 1) methamphetamine manufacture, distribution, and abuse; 2) programs for the prevention of, intervention in, and treatment of methamphetamine abuse; and 3) the response from the law enforcement and the criminal justice system. The bill also creates a state methamphetamine task force to examine specific issues concerning best practices for the prevention, intervention and treatment of methamphetamine abuse. The task force will provide guidance and recommendations to the oversight committee.

The task force is repealed in July of 2010.
