WASHINGTON D.C....Last Thursday, the House of Representatives passed the Halt All Lethal Trafficking of (HALT) Fentanyl Act, which will permanently re-schedule fentanyl and ensure the federal government recognizes this substance for the deadly threat it is. It will give our law enforcement the tools they need to combat this danger, and it will empower researchers to better understand the full scope of the drug’s impact on American’s health.

The flow of fentanyl across our unsecure borders is not only a public health crisis, but a national security crisis as well. With as much as 90% of illicit fentanyl coming from China, the Chinese Communist Party has a hand in the poisoning of American citizens. Fentanyl poisoning is now the number one cause of death among adults between 18 and 49, resulting in the loss of tens of thousands of American lives.

I believe we owe a solution to the families who have lost a loved one to fentanyl and we have a duty to protect American from this poison. That’s why I proudly voted in favor of the HALT Fentanyl Act. Photo:CSPAN
