Rep. Graves Supports Fight Against the Opioid Epidemic

Washington, June 15, 2018 - Rep. Tom Graves (R-GA-14) this week voted for and the House passed more than 30 bills combating the opioid epidemic.

“The opioid epidemic is devastating families and communities across America,” said Rep. Graves. “In 2016 alone, nearly 1,400 Georgians died of an opioid overdose. The bipartisan bills the House passed this week expand access to treatment and recovery centers, improve data to identify and help at-risk patients, give law enforcement better tools to get drugs out of communities, and help stop foreign shipments of illegal drugs.”
