On Tuesday, Governor Wolf, legislative leaders, and members of the Wolf Administration attended the PA Hope Caucus’ “Day of Hope” rally in Harrisburg. The PA Hope Caucus’ mission is to ensure every Pennsylvanian has access to high quality prevention and treatment of the disease of drug and alcohol addiction.
Last week, Governor Wolf respectfully requested a Joint Session of the General Assembly to address our collective efforts to lead the nation in combatting the opioid and heroin crisis facing Pennsylvania.
With ten people a day in our commonwealth dying from drug overdoses, we cannot afford to stall. This fall, Governor Wolf and the legislature will make sure that battling the opioid epidemic is a top priority.
