    New Hampshire Delegation Urges Trump to Prioritize Opioid Funding

    New Hampshire's Democratic congressional delegation is urging President Donald Trump to prioritize funding for State Opioid Response grants in his annual budget proposal to Congress.

    The delegation wrote that the funding has provided "vital support to efforts from health care providers, first responders and families" in the state working to combat the opioid epidemic.

    Sens. Jeanne Shaheen and Maggie Hassan and Reps. Annie Kuster and Chris Pappas said the state remains one of the hardest-hit in the nation, with about 450 drug overdose deaths in 2018.

    The delegation emphasized the importance of set-aside funding for states with the highest mortality rates, including New Hampshire.
