President Trump Signs Major Opioid Package Into Law

This week President Trump signed H.R. 6, the bipartisan opioid package into law. This bill will help expand access to treatment, improve prevention programs, and give law enforcement the tools they need. H.R. 6 is a substantial step in the right direction in fighting this epidemic.

We were proud that H.R. 6 includes 4 of our bills:

·         POWER Act (HR 5176) helps reduce repeat overdoses

·         ALTO Act (HR 5197) encourages alternative pain treatment

·         Emmett's Law (HR 5695) improves info sharing between providers & families

·         AIDD Act (HR 5628) increases access to safe Rx disposal

President Trump Signs Bill that Provides Funding to Battle Opioid Crisis

McKinley Talks Agriculture, Rural Water, Healthcare Issues

This past week we have traveled across the district to discuss agriculture issues, rural water issues, and several others. We met with members of the Preston County Growers Co-op and Masontown City Officials, and spoke at an economic development conference in Wheeling.  

We also had the chance to host three round tables in the district this week. Two were held in Preston County to discuss agriculture and rural water issues, while the third was spent at Ruby Hospital in Morgantown to review new updates and talk to providers at the facility. As the husband of a critical care nurse, I appreciate the vital role doctors and nurses play in the delivery of care.

McKinley Introduces Pre-Apprenticeship Bill

Many students today want to follow an apprentice-based route, but not all are afforded the opportunity to learn applicable skills. West Virginia deserves a well-trained workforce to help build our future, and apprenticeships are critical to our success. Rep. Norcross and I recently introduced the PATH Act to support pre-apprenticeship programs that help train underrepresented individuals. This is an important step to help close the skills gap, and I am glad to be a part of it.
