STATEMENT OF ATTORNEY GENERAL 

MARK R. HERRING

~on AHCA vote~

 

Attorney General Mark R. Herring issued the following statement on the passage of AHCA: 

 

"As Virginia families and communitiesface a devastating heroin and opioid crisis, this horrible bill would decrease coverage for recovery and treatment. Over 1,100 Virginians died of a drug overdose just last year, and any bill that makes it more difficult to address this epidemic and help Virginians get treatment is dangerous and irresponsible.

 

"As attorney general I have fought to protect affordable, accessible healthcare in Virginia, and I promise I'll keep fighting. My hope is that the Senate will see the light and kill this dangerous bill."
