Washington, D.C. – The House Judiciary Committee today released a video on the devastating impact of the opioid crisis. In the video, Kristen Holman of Lynchburg, Virginia shares the story about how her little brother, Garrett, lost his life as a result of opioid abuse.

In May 2018, Kristen testified before the House Judiciary Committee at a hearing on the “Challenges and Solutions in the Opioid Abuse Crisis.” Over the next couple of weeks, the House of Representatives is taking up dozens of bills to combat this chilling epidemic, including two Judiciary Committee bills, the REGROUP Act and the Stop Importation and Trafficking of Synthetic Analogues Act.
