Opioid Crisis Office May be Gutted


Two New Hampshire senators call a report that a plan by the White House to gut the office of national drug control policy, is reckless.


The office which shapes policy on the national opioid crisis would be cut by more than 300-million dollars, according to a preliminary budget document.


The proposal says a smaller organization will be formed to more effectively address drug control issues.

During a campaign rally back in October, the then-presidential candidate told potential voters in Portsmouth, he would help solve the crisis.


Senators Jeanne shaheen and Maggie hassan said in a joint statement

“Today’s reports, if true, would represent another broken promise to granite staters.”


The white house has not responded to this report.
