Combating the Opioid Crisis

Energy and Commerce has been at the tip of the spear in the national fight to combat the opioid crisis. From our early investigations in 2012 to present day, we remain committed to combating this crisis.  Our efforts are moving forward on two tracks: advancing collaborative, bipartisan legislative solutions and continuing investigations into several key issues that have contributed to this growing epidemic.
