Gov. Charlie Baker announces opioid legislation

Republican Gov. Charlie Baker said that while the report is encouraging, there are still too many people in MA dying from opioid-related overdoses. Baker said the act is a targeted approach to increased access to treatment and recovery services, along with strenghtening education and prevention efforts.

Gov. Charlie Baker (R-Mass.) is asking for additional help in fighting the opioid epidemic in MA with new legislation. But with more than 1,400 opioid overdose deaths this year, top state leaders want to take further action.

En los Estados Unidos, por ejemplo, fueron los modelos Colorado y Silverado los escogidos para "vestir" el moño Chevrolet vintage. Desde entonces, la empresa no paró más de evolucionar haciendo vehículos cada vez más confiables y tecnológicos.

The letters follow Baker's unveiling of a new bill Tuesday that he says will ramp up the state's battle against an opioid crisis that has claimed thousands of lives in MA.

Baker said the package will include a proposal to set standards for providers and insurance companies, requiring they demonstrate they can treat people with substance use disorders before they can get a license. Governor Baker estimates the plan will have a net cost of $100 million to $120 million.
