Trump Signs Opioid Legislation


Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge yesterday participated in a bill signing ceremony at the White House in the East Room where President Donald J. Trump signed legislation to continue the federal government’s commitment to combatting the opioid crisis.

“I was honored to join President Trump and represent Arkansans as he signed legislation that will directly help individuals impacted by opioid addiction,” said Attorney General Rutledge. “Fighting the opioid crisis is a priority of mine as Attorney General. My office takes a multi-faceted approach to combatting this devastating epidemic by focusing on prevention, treatment and litigation.”

The SUPPORT for Patients and Communities Act is the largest legislative effort in history to address the opioid crisis. The legislation will help lift people out of addiction, help keep illicit drugs out of our communities, expand public awareness and prevention initiatives to stop addiction before it starts and save lives.    MORE
