Senate Passes Bipartisan Legislation to Combat Opioid Epidemic

The Senate on Monday passed sweeping, bipartisan legislation aimed at combating the opioid epidemic through new research, treatment and help for families affected by addiction. The bill, which includes more than 70 provisions, passed the Senate with a 99—1 vote. Federal funding to combat the opioid epidemic has increased over the past few years, as the health crisis has worsened. The spending bill passed in March of this year included $4.7 billion to fight the health crisis, including $1 billion for grants for states. (Natalie Andrews, The Wall Street Journal)
