State Representative Lance Yednock is launching an Opioid Advisory Committee to bring together local advocates to offer solutions to the opioid crisis.

Yednock says the crisis is out of control, and that he’d like to see Illinois lead the charge in cracking down on the epidemic.

The first meeting will be held on Thursday at 6 at the LaSalle County Complex at 707 E. Etna Rd. The first meeting will bring together law enforcement and community activists. The Ottawa Democrat intends to host several of these meetings in the coming months.
