U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) and Hennepin County Sheriff Dawanna Witt gathered to talk about lawmakers’ efforts to keep Minnesotans safe from fentanyl on Tuesday morning.

Klobuchar was joined by Minnetonka Public Schools Health Service Director Annie Lumber Bendson in addition to Olga Shevtsova and Natalie Shevtsova — a mother and daughter who lost their daughter and sister Anastasia Shevtsova to fentanyl poisoning.

The STOP 2.0 Act was introduced by Klobuchar in 2023 in an effort to counteract the illegal opioids entering the U.S.
