WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, the House of Representatives passed H.R. 6, the Substance Use-Disorder Prevention that Promotes Opioid Recovery and Treatment (SUPPORT) for Patients and Communities Act. This comprehensive package of overwhelmingly bipartisan bills will advance treatment and recovery initiatives, improve prevention, protect our communities, and bolster efforts to fight deadly illicit synthetic drugs like fentanyl. Congressman Wenstrup (OH-02) released the following statement:
“The SUPPORT for Patients and Communities Act is a significant step in our ongoing efforts to help America’s communities heal from the deadly impacts of the opioid crisis. This bipartisan bill is the most significant piece of legislation against a single drug crisis in history. I urge my colleagues in the Senate to quickly pass the SUPPORT for Patients and Communities Act to aid families and communities in Ohio and across America,” said Congressman Brad Wenstrup.
