Congressman Lawler Introduces Fentanyl Kills Act To Combat Fentanyl Trafficking

On Tuesday, Congressman Mike Lawler (NY-17) introduced the Fentanyl Kills Act, legislation that would charge individuals who have trafficked fentanyl with attempted murder. The legislation is an important step in tackling the fentanyl crisis impacting Hudson Valley communities and will dissuade drug traffickers from spreading this poison across the country.

“The fentanyl crisis that is gripping our country and local communities is a serious problem and requires serious consequences for those who peddle this dangerous drug,” said Congressman Lawler (NY-17). “The Fentanyl Kills Act takes drug traffickers head-on, imposing serious penalties for these criminals who know exactly what they are doing.”

“Serious crime must have serious consequences to maintain law and order in our society,” concluded Congressman Lawler (NY-17). “By enacting strict laws that discourage fentanyl trafficking and investing in recovery programs that tackle substance use disorder, we can finally defeat the scourge of fentanyl that has hurt so many families in the Hudson Valley and across the country.”

The legislation is co-sponsored by Congressman David Valadao (CA-22) and Congressman Jim Baird (IN-04).
