Combat Meth Enhancement looks likely

This article was originally published in The Tan Sheet

Executive Summary

Congressional staff expect the Combat Methamphetamine Enhancement Act to pass after the Senate and House agree to "minor technical corrections" in the legislation that requires retailers to comply with provisions of the Combat Methamphetamine Epidemic Act of 2006. Minor changes in the House bill passed Sept. 22 include tweaking phrasing, statutory citations, adding a statement to comply with the PAYGO Act and replacing 2009 with 2010 in the title. A Feinstein staffer said Senate members likely will approve the House version the week of Sept. 27. The bill requires retailers to self-certify compliance with Drug Enforcement Administration regulations concerning Combat Met Act retail sales provisions. It sets $5,000 penalties for noncompliance and prohibits distributors from delivering pseuodephedrine-containing OTCs to noncompliant stores. The Consumer Healthcare Products Association and the National Association of Chain Drugstores support the measure, which enhances regulations limiting sales of PSE without creating new restrictions on consumer access to the drugs (1"The Tan Sheet" Aug. 2, 2010, In Brief)
