Education Department Asked To Step Up Anti-Drug Programs

(Washington, D.C.) -- Drug-related deaths among teens are increasing faster in Oregon than anywhere else in the nation, and most of Oregon's federal lawmakers are asking the U-S Department of Education to do more to curb teen opioid use. The bipartisan group sent a letter praising the Department of Education for recent efforts to combat the fentanyl crisis, but they believe more can be done. They want to know what other resources the department needs to address the issue. Republican Congressman Cliff Bentz is the only member of the delegation who didn't sign the letter.
