NY senator pushes for tighter controls on hydrocodone
The deadly Seaford pharmacy robbery is prompting a new push for tighter controls on hydrocodone.
Sen. Kristen Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) wants federal agencies to make a decision on the additive painkiller.
Since 1999, the feds have been studying whether the painkiller should be moved to a more tightly controlled category of drugs.
Hydrocodone has become one of the country's most abused medicines.
