Rep. Curbelo Votes to Make South Florida a Healthier Place for Families
Washington, D.C.—This week, the U.S. House of Representatives passed a package of eighteen bills to aid in the fight against opioid abuse throughout the country. Rep. Carlos Curbelo (FL-26) proudly voted in favor of these bills to help make South Florida and our nation a safer and healthier place for all.
Several bills that were incorporated in the package include:
“Opioid abuse is an epidemic that unfortunately affects citizens of all socioeconomic classes and all regions across the country. These eighteen bills will help to combat the misuse of drugs and make our neighborhoods safer places for everyone. Addiction is a disease, and it’s important that we do what we can to help the individuals and their families who are struggling with this serious problem. I am optimistic that the passage of this bill package will elicit positive changes in our communities.”
