ST.PAUL, Minn. (KFGO AM) -- The Minnesota Senate Health and Human Services Committe has approved a bill that would allow first responders to use a drug that can reverse effects of a heroin overdose.

Senator Chris Eaton of Brooklyn Center says the legislation gives a standing order for administering the drug.

Eaton lost her daughter to a heroin overdose in 2007.

She says the Senate Judiciary Committee is scheduled to consider the legislation Friday.
