Small business owners also have personal lines ...

McHenry Hosts Opioid Crisis Workshop for Local Law Enforcement Agencies

The workshop--which was attended by 20 Tenth District law enforcement agencies--was led by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and focused on law enforcement strategies to help combat this epidemic.

"This epidemic must be confronted from every angle: awareness of the dangers posed by opioids, preventing access to them, and rehabilitating those suffering from addiction." "Ultimately our law enforcement agencies are the first line of defense in the fight against this epidemic," Congressman McHenry continued. "The workshop provided these agencies with the information and resources they need to lead this importan

H.R. 5210 passed the House by a voice vote.  “North Carolina’s eugenics program is a sad part of the history of our great state,” said Congressman McHenry. “While we can never fully compensate the victims for the pain they suffered at the hands of the state, this bipartisan bill will at least ensure they are not further penalized for accepting compensation payments they deserve.” H.R. 2949 was included with H.R. 5210 when it passed the House. H.R. 5210 was introduced by Congressman Tom Price (R, GA-06).
