McKinley Fights Against the Opioid Epidemic

This was an important week in the fight against the opioid epidemic.

1) The House passed a funding bill that included $6.7 BILLION in funding to combat the opioid crisis. Much of that funding will go back to the states to help improve access to treatment, fund prevention programs and more. Rural areas and hard-hit states like WV will get a significant amount of that.

2) The House and Senate agreed on a comprehensive package that includes a variety of common sense policies that will reduce barriers to treatment, help develop alternatives to addictive pain killers and help stop the flow of deadly synthetic drugs.

While there is no silver bullet in solving this epidemic, these bills will go a long way to help.

This week we met with my friends from the Mine Workers of America. We have lead the charge to protect their healthcare benefits and pensions over the last few years throughout North America. It is time for Congress to act before it is too late.

McKinley Discusses Importance of Brownfields Program
This week I adressed a group of officials from around the country about the importance of Congress reauthorizing and reforming the Brownfields Program for the first time since 2006. Brownfields sites are often abandoned, closed, or under-utilized industrial or commercial facilities, such as an abandoned factory or a former dry-cleaning establishment. Cleaning up an abandoned site and converting to productive use can completely change a community. Our bill to improve the Brownfields program was signed into law earlier this year.  We will keep pushing to prioritize this important program.
