Rep. Andy Kim Holds Meeting on Opioid Crisis in New Jersey

Rep. Andy Kim (D-N.J.) met with local leaders this month to discuss the ongoing opioid crisis. Kim has also introduced legislation that would increase awareness and transparency of the opioid approval process. 

“When it comes to addressing the opioid and addiction epidemic, it’s absolutely critical to listen to those on the front lines and to bring their expertise back to Congress,” Kim said.

Between 2012 and 2017 drug related deaths more than doubled in New Jersey.
