Jun 18, 2018 5:00 am
Chris McKenna is reporting for The Fray U.S. Reps. John Faso and Sean Patrick Maloney each saw proposals they backed included in a bill combating the opioid crisis approved by House on a vote of 353 to 52, June 14. Republican Faso sponsored a measure intended to restrict the mailing of synthetic opioids like fentanyl from China and other countries by enabling postal authorities to track and to intercept packages from known sources before they are sent to the U.S. Democrat Maloney’s contribution was a new requirement that the federal government publish an annual report on internet opioid sales and the covert websites that peddle the drugs. “The fact that we don’t even know the extent of this problem is just crazy to me,” Maloney said. Faso said in a statement, “I’m encouraged that we came together to craft a real solution to this problem that is realistic, implementable, and effective. This is a big step in our fight to rid our communities of deadly synthetic drugs, such as fentanyl.” Read the full story at The Fray, Politics in the Hudson Valley and Catskills.
