N.H. Drug Task Force Prepares for First Meeting

Nov 23, 2015

The Legislature's new drug task force kicks off Tuesday with its first meeting aimed to help better address the state's opioid crisis.

The group has a busy schedule, with nearly 20 people expected to speak over the course of the day. That will include Manchester Chief of Police Nick Willard, and Tym Rourke, who chairs the Governor's commission on Alcohol and Drug Abuse.

The task force will also hear from policy directors for New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who has spent quite some time in New Hampshire campaigning for president. Gov. Maggie Hassan and Attorney General Joe Foster will also be in attendance.

The task force is scheduled to meet Tuesday through Thursday over the next few weeks.
