The opioid epidemic impacts almost every family in the Commonwealth. I am committed to continuing to work with my legislative colleagues, and Governor Baker, to ensure that our families, our communities, our schools, and our first responders have the tools they need to protect our loved ones from this terrible diseases.
In recent years, Jim has:
- Successfully worked to increase funding for addiction treatment programs and increase the number of beds available for those seeking treatment
- Proposed stricter sentencing for heroin dealers and traffickers convicted of profiting off of this public health crisis
- Worked together with legislative colleagues to pass several comprehensive opioid reform bills
