A message from US Senator Todd Young
On Monday, I hosted Air Force Chief of Staff, General David Goldfein at
Naval Support Activity Crane to showcase the professionalism and skill
of Crane's workforce, as well as their critical and growing
contribution to our national security. I look forward to working with
General Goldfein to continue increasing Crane's extraordinary support
to the Air Force.
Fighting the Opioid Epidemic
On Friday, hundreds of Hoosiers came together at the AgrIInstitute
Rural Opioid Addiction Symposium to share ideas on fighting the opioid
epidemic in Indiana.
The President's recent declaration of a nationwide public health
emergency is one important step in the ongoing fight against the drug
crisis. In our state, we have a challenge ahead of us to ensure that
our rural towns have access to the right tools to fight this epidemic.
I introduced the bipartisan Opioid Addiction Risk Transparency Act that
the President signed into law this summer as part of the Food and Drug
Administration Reauthorization Act of 2017. This bill offers doctors
better information about the risks of addiction and encourages them to
communicate that information with their patients.
Until we put an end to the opioid crisis, I will continue working to
ensure the federal government is doing its part to protect Hoosier
families from the scourge of addiction.
