U.S. Senators Chris Van Hollen and Ben Cardin (both D-Md.) have announced $10,036,845 in federal funding to fight Maryland’s opioid health crisis. The grant is funded by the 21st Century Cures Act, which was backed by both Senator Cardin and Senator Van Hollen and signed into law by President Obama in 2016. The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) will provide the funds through the State Targeted Response to the Opioid Crisis Grants, which is administered by HHS’ Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).

U.S. Senators Chris Van Hollen and Ben Cardin joined Congressmen Steny Hoyer, Elijah Cummings, C.A. Dutch Ruppersberger, John Sarbanes, John Delaney, Anthony Brown, and Jamie Raskin in support of the DC Metroplex BWI Community Roundtable’s proposed resolution of the NextGen flight path issue at BWI Airport and urged the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to act.

U.S. Senator Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.) joined Senator Edward J. Markey (D-Mass.), and nine other Senators in introducing legislation to restore broadband privacy rules that will protect consumers from having their personal, sensitive information sold without their consent.

“It’s shameful that Congressional Republicans voted to allow Americans’ personal information be sold to the highest bidder,” said Senator Van Hollen. “This was a blatant giveaway to corporate special interests. We must fully restore consumer privacy protections without delay.”
