Funding for Nashua’s Substance Use Disorder Services Sent to Governor

CONCORD - Today, HB 1230 which makes an appropriation to the department of health and human services for the purpose of funding substance use disorder services in Nashua, was delivered to the Secretary of State. It next goes to the governor’s desk where he will have five business days to sign, veto, or allow the bill to become law without his signature.

Senator Cindy Rosenwald (D-Nashua) issued the following statement in response:

“We know that the COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated substance use disorder triggers including anxiety, financial hardship, and general uncertainty. When individuals begin to seek treatment, it is essential that those programs be properly funded, even if there are changes in how services are delivered. This bipartisan legislation gives Nashua the flexibility to use its resources to fight the opioid epidemic during this unprecedented time. I thank my Legislative colleagues for their work on this critical issue and urge the governor to sign HB 1230 into law.”
