Press Release

“I'm pleased to see that members from both sides of the aisle have come together to combat an issue affecting communities around the country. Opioid addiction is a serious problem, and the House has approved a package with 18 bills that help to confront the crisis. From bringing together healthcare stakeholders and experts to create a task force that will identify best practices, to awarding grants to state, local, or tribal governments to collaborate ideas on ways to help alleviate the crisis, these bills provide the resources and the guidance our cities, towns, and states need to begin the battle against opioid addiction.”
