Oct 24, 2018 Issues: Health

Laurens, S.C. – Congressman Jeff Duncan (SC-03), Member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, praised President Trump for signing H.R. 6, the SUPPORT for Patients and Communities Act, into law:

“The opioid epidemic has devastated many individuals, families, and communities around the country. As I have said before, this is an all hands on deck situation that requires a response not only on federal, state, and local levels, but also on the doctor-patient level. This landmark legislation is aimed to advance treatment and recovery options, provide the much-needed resources to help communities, and strengthen the fight against illicit synthetic drugs. Too many families have been impacted by the scourge of the opioid epidemic, and I am thankful that Congress and President Trump came together to produce critical solutions to start addressing this ever-growing problem.”
