FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

There are no parties when it comes to addressing Maine’s opioid crisis. Legislative Republicans commend the Governor for using a number of recommendations from last summer’s bipartisan Task Force to Address the Opioid Crisis in Maine. That task force, comprised of lawmakers, members of law enforcement, the medical community and drug treatment specialists, spent months examining state laws regarding law enforcement, prevention, treatment and recovery to better understand the opioid crisis in Maine and develop a plan of action.

We hope that this will be a dynamic process that includes success matrices to evaluate whether the various components of the Executive Order are effective. We will work collaboratively on this crisis to ensure we maximize the value of every dollar on policies that work while protecting those on the front lines trying to help their neighbors.

We all have a shared goal of saving lives.

Maine Senate & House Republicans
