Today Congresswomen Carol Shea-Porter (NH-01) and Annie Kuster (NH-02), the founder and co-chair of the Bipartisan Heroin Task Force, along with U.S. Senators Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) and Maggie Hassan (D-NH) wrote to President Donald Trump to express their opposition to proposed cuts to the Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP). The letter highlights the importance of ONDCP to addressing the substance misuse crisis in New Hampshire.

The letter comes as the Trump Administration continues to pursue policies that would undermine efforts to address the opioid crisis.
