Sherrod “Commended” By Ohioans for “Work[ing] Across the Aisle” to Pass FEND Off Fentanyl Act

COLUMBUS, OH  – The Marietta Times Editorial Board “commended” Sherrod for his “work across the aisle” to pass the FEND Off Fentanyl Act, which was signed into law last week. Sherrod worked with Republicans for months to pass this legislation to protect Ohioans from dangerous fentanyl by cracking down on the chemical suppliers in China and drug traffickers in Mexico.

Politico noted Sherrod’s “ambitious portfolio of bipartisan legislation” stands in “bright contrast” to Bernie Moreno, who said he “reject[s]” bipartisanship and that he would have voted against the FEND Off Fentanyl Act. Sherrod’s legislation was also endorsed by the Fraternal Order of Police and law enforcement officers across Ohio.

Marietta Times: Sen. Brown deserves praise for FEND Off Fentanyl Act
Marietta Times Editorial Board – April 29, 2024

  • Battling the substance abuse epidemic that has crippled Appalachia is a multifaceted fight. Among the tools requested by law enforcement has been a way to help stop the flood of fentanyl at its source. U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, has finally managed to get something done about that.
  • With the FEND Off Fentanyl Act, the president will now have the ability to sanction drug traffickers and gangs. (FEND stands for fentanyl eradication and narcotics deterrence.)
  • “The bill will enhance current law so U.S. government agencies can more effectively disrupt illicit opioid supply chains and penalize those facilitating the trafficking of fentanyl. The bill also ensures that sanctions are imposed not only on the illicit drug trade, but also on the money laundering that makes it profitable.”
  • Brown worked with U.S. Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., to bring the bill to the finish line, eventually as part of the foreign aid package that was passed recently.
  • FEND should make a difference for the Buckeye State and for those across the country who will welcome the added support in their struggle.
  • “Fentanyl has taken too many lives and caused too much devastation in Ohio. FEND Off Fentanyl will save lives by going directly after the drug cartels’ billions in illicit profits, targeting the entire fentanyl supply chain and sanctioning illicit opioid traffickers and money launderers in China and Mexico,” said Brown.
  • Brown is to be commended for his diligence — and his willingness to work across the aisle — to get that done.
