Opioid Crisis

Senator Jack Bailey met today with other state and local leaders at the St. Mary's County Health Department in Leonardtown to discuss Maryland's continuing response to the opioid crisis.

Senator Bailey was joined by Steve Schuh, Director of the state's Opioid Operational Command Center, members of the St. Mary's County Board of Commissioners, and representatives of the St. Mary's County Health Department, State's Attorney's Office, and Emergency Services. This meeting was an opportunity to discuss the challenges that the county faces in responding to the problems posed to our communities by opioid addiction, what actions are being taken to address these challenges, and what state government can do to support county officials in their efforts.

Public safety is a priority for Senator Bailey, and he is committed to working with the Hogan Administration and local governments in St. Mary's and Calvert Counties to find solutions to help fight this ongoing public health crisis.
