Maryland Governor Larry Hogan is hoping the Trump administration will do more at the federal level to fight the opioid epidemic.  Hogan joined a bipartisan group of governors testifying before the Senate Health Committee on opioid addiction last week.  The White House budget is requesting more than $3 billion in funding this fiscal year for the problem, but Hogan says that is not enough.  Hogan also called on Congress to pass a bipartisan bill that would help authorities identify packages coming through the postal service containing drugs.
