MD Gov. asks Congress for more help on opioid crisis


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.
