Gov. Bruce Rauner has signed legislation designed to prevent opioid abuse. 


The legislation requires those in the prescription business to use a database containing patient prescription histories. That allows physicians to detect if patients have previously requested controlled substances from other doctors. Rauner signed the legislation at Comprehensive Behavioral Health Center in East St. Louis.



The new law takes effect Jan. 1.
