I move to add an amendment section 2, that adds the following under Section 2 Overdose prevention programs with:

 

PRESCRIPTION DRUG, HEROIN, AND OTHER CONTROLLED SUBSTANCE ABUSE

              PREVENTION.

    Part P of title III of the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C.

280g) is amended by adding at the end the following:

 

``SEC. 399V-7. PRESCRIPTION DRUG, HEROIN, AND OTHER CONTROLLED

              SUBSTANCE ABUSE PREVENTION.

    ``(a) Training Grants.--

            ``(1) In general.--The Secretary shall award 5-year grants

        to eligible entities to facilitate training in order to

        increase the capacity of health care providers to conduct

        patient screening, brief interventions, and referral to

        treatment as needed, such as in health care settings to prevent

        the abuse of prescription drugs, heroin, and other controlled

        substances. The grant program under this section may be

        coordinated with the Screening Brief Intervention and Referral

        to Treatment grant program of the Substance Abuse and Mental

        Health Services Administration, or other appropriate programs.

            ``(2) Eligible entities.--In this subsection, the term

        `eligible entity' includes--

                    ``(A) States;

                    ``(B) physician organizations;

                    ``(C) continuing education entities, such as health

                profession boards or health accrediting bodies;

                    ``(D) peer recovery organizations; and

                    ``(E) other appropriate health or professional

                education organizations or institutions.

    ``(b) Expansion of Prescribing Authority.--The Secretary, acting

through the Administrator of the Health Resources and Services

Administration, shall award grants to States for the purpose of

evaluating the prospect of the health professions board of such States

reviewing and expanding prescribing authorities of providers, such as

advance practice nurses and physician's assistants, with respect to

prescribing drugs for the treatment of the abuse of prescription drugs,

heroin, or other controlled substances.''.
