Maloney’s Bill to Combat Opioid Abuse Unanimously Passes the House
Legislation Would Curb Overprescribing of Opioids, Incentivize Anti-Abuse Technologies
Washington – The House of Representatives today unanimously passed Representative Sean Patrick Maloney’s (NY-18) legislation to combat opioid abuse by improving education for prescribing physicians and incentivizing the pharmaceutical industry to include anti-abuse properties in new medications. The Opioid Review Modernization Act would require drug companies to obtain additional levels of expert approval when seeking Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval for medications that do not use abuse-deterrent technologies, like extended-release capsules. In addition, it would create a strategy for educating well-meaning physicians about the potential harms in prescribing opioids. This legislation is set to be included in a package of legislation, including the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act (CARA), heading to a conference committee with the Senate.
“No single strategy can solve this crisis - we need a comprehensive approach that builds on proven methods and innovative solutions to end the flood of opioids in our communities, get drugs off our streets, and expand prevention and treatment efforts,” said Rep. Maloney. “As part of an all-around package of legislation to combat the opioid epidemic, my bill is a tool in our tool belt - providing incentives for pharmaceutical companies to use anti-abuse technologies and create a plan to educate our well-meaning doctors about the potential dangers of prescription opioids.”
The Opioid Review Modernization Act would require the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to establish an advisory committee to evaluate new drugs which do not contain abuse-deterrent properties. The committee would also solicit outside input and provide a period for public comments. If pharmaceutical producers choose to include abuse-deterrent components in new medicines, they would have the option to bypass the committee. This process would incentivize the use of abuse-deterrent technology in new medication by offering an expedited path to approval. The bill would also require the FDA to develop a suggested curriculum for doctors who prescribe opioids as part of the agency’s Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategy (REMS). Currently, no comprehensive strategy exists to ensure all doctors are aware of the potential for abuse inherent in opioid-based medication.
Earlier this year, Rep. Maloney introduced another bill to combat the opioid epidemic; the Keeping Communities Safe Through Treatment Act would provide law enforcement with the option to divert low-level drug offenders directly to treatment instead of booking them and sending them through the criminal justice system. In early April, law enforcement personnel from throughout the Hudson Valley joined Rep. Maloney to call for passage of the bill. Additionally, the Orange County Legislature passed a resolution supporting the bill and calling on Congress to take action. Earlier this year, Rep. Maloney held a telephone town hall on the heroin and opioid epidemic with over 21,000 Hudson Valley residents.

Maloney Calls on Department of Defense to Investigate Contamination of Newburgh Water
Demands DoD Give Priority to Stewart Investigation, Take Part in Cleanup Efforts
Washington – Following the discovery of high levels of contaminants in Newburgh’s water supply, Representative Sean Patrick Maloney called on the Department of Defense (DoD) to immediately conduct an investigation into the likely source of the pollution – Stewart Air National Guard Base. In addition to calling for a review of the source of the contaminant, Rep. Maloney asked the DoD to ensure total remediation for the City of Newburgh.  
“Water is a basic right for all Americans regardless of where they live, how much money they have in their bank account, or the color of their skin,” said Maloney. “We can’t allow Newburgh to shoulder this burden alone, and our leaders in the DoD – including Secretary of Defense Carter – must take the necessary steps to get to the bottom of this issue and help us protect families and small businesses in Newburgh.”  
Last week, Newburgh City Manager Michael Ciaravino declared a state of emergency following tests of Newburgh’s water, which showed abnormal, and potentially dangerous levels of the pollutant perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS), a chemical used in firefighting foams, sealants, and cleaning products. Subsequent tests showed exponentially higher levels of the pollutant in ponds near Stewart Air National Guard Base, which eventually drain into Washington Lake, the primary source of Newburgh’s water. DoD has used firefighting foams, which contain PFOS, for over 40 years. Earlier this year, the Department of Defense announced plans to test for groundwater contamination from firefighting foams  at hundreds of sites across the country.
After initial reports of contamination in the City of Newburgh water, Rep. Maloney and Senators Charles Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand wrote a letter to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) calling for immediate assistance to determine the source of the contamination, test contaminant levels, and formulate a remediation plan.
The full letter to the DoD is as follows:
Dear Secretary Carter,
Recent testing of Washington Lake, the drinking water supply for the City of Newburgh, New York, found abnormally and unacceptably high levels of perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and perfluorooc­tane sulfonate (PFOS) contamination. Follow-up tests showed extremely high levels of those contaminants in outfalls from nearby Stewart Air National Guard Base that discharge runoff directly into Washington Lake tributaries. As you know, PFOA and PFOS are frequently found in aqueous film forming foam (AFFF), which has been used by the Department of Defense to extinguish petroleum fires for over 40 years. Together, these facts strongly suggest Newburgh’s water supply contamination is coming from Stewart Airport and Stewart Air National Guard Base.
PFOS and PFOA contamination is not a problem unique to Newburgh. The United States military is currently conducting an extensive review of military bases to test for PFOA and PFOS contamination stemming from the use of AFFF. However, the danger this contamination poses to the drinking water of such a vulnerable and underserved community elevates the urgency for action to crisis levels.  
At this time, Stewart Air National Guard Base is not currently included in the military base review. I ask that you not only add Stewart Air National Guard Base to the scheduled reviews, I urge you to place Stewart at the top of the list. We must move quickly to identify the source of this pollution and get in action to stop the spread of contamination. Furthermore – I ask that you immediately engage with the community to take all steps necessary to invest in complete and total remediation.
I want to stress the urgency of action. We are running out of time. Newburgh has switched to an alternative source of drinking water, but that source will run dry in a matter of weeks. After that, the city will be forced to pursue options that will cost millions of dollars. Newburgh is a financially distressed city of nearly 30,000 people. Over one third of the population lives in poverty. Median household income lags far behind state and national averages. They cannot be asked to shoulder this burden.
In the United States, access to clean water is a right, not a privilege. Total systemic failures have denied my neighbors in Newburgh access to water. They deserve better. We must act, and we must act now.
Thank you for your service and I look forward to working with you on this.
Sean Patrick Maloney
