Task Force & Other Entities

In March 2014, the New York State Senate Majority Coalition created the Joint Senate Task Force on Heroin and Opioid Addiction to examine the alarming rise in use of heroin and opioids
across New York State. Task Force members look at the issues surrounding the increase in drug abuse, addiction, and drug related crimes; solicit input from experts and other stakeholders; and develop recommendations used to create legislation to address concerns that are raised.
