Boston, MA - United States Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) will be in Mashpee on Saturday, April 21st.
On Saturday afternoon, Senator Warren will visit the Mashpee Wampanoag Health Service Unit. During her visit, Senator Warren will tour the facility and participate in a roundtable discussion on her new legislation, the Comprehensive Addiction Resources Emergency (CARE) Act. The tour is open press and the roundtable is closed press.
This week, Senator Warren and Representative Elijah E. Cummings (D-Md.) introduced the CARE Act, which would provide the resources needed to begin treating the opioid crisis like the critical public health emergency it is. The CARE Act will provide states and communities with $100 billion in federal funding over ten years, including more than $800 million a year directly to tribal governments and organizations. The Commonwealth would get around $55 million per year in state formula grants and the hardest-hit communities in Massachusetts would receive an estimated $64.5 million in annual funding.
