U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) made the following statement after President Trump and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced state-based grants to combat the opioid crisis, including $7.6 million for Oklahoma.
“Too many families in Oklahoma and across the country have felt the impact of the opioid crisis. Working with President Trump, I’ve made addressing the crisis a priority—passing legislation that gave HHS the tools to combat the epidemic and working to support veterans suffering from opioid addiction.
“This week, President Trump continued our efforts by awarding state-based grants, including $7.6 million for Oklahoma, that will increase access to prevention methods, recovery efforts and treatment services that work best for local communities.”
