Ra Applauds Signing of Bill Ensuring Opioid Settlement Dollars Fund Treatment, Recovery Efforts

A Statement by Assemblyman Ed Ra (R-Franklin Square)

“Pharmaceutical companies that played a sinister role in fueling the opioid crisis are being held accountable. I was pleased to support legislation requiring hundreds of millions of settlement dollars coming to the state be spent on treatment and recovery. Addiction is a disease. This funding should be dedicated to bolstering our efforts to treat it with compassion. This ‘lockbox’ law will ensure that is what happens.”
