Had a great day in south Arkansas topped off with a stop at Hoots BBQ in McGehee where I talked with folks about the next farm bill. Good to see the corn harvest well underway in DeWitt.


In 2015, more than 50,000 Americans died of drug overdoses, which are now the leading cause of death for Americans under the age of 50. This addiction crisis – particularly for heroin, opioids and prescription drugs – has been even more pronounced in rural America. In fact, drug-related deaths are nearly 50 percent higher in rural areas. But too often, rural communities lack the much-needed health care infrastructure to address this crisis. “The cost of opioid addiction goes beyond the heartbreaking individual loss of life: there’s also law enforcement and health care costs that weigh on all of us,” Congressman Crawford said. “But in rural America, treatment can be hard to administer, and the same tactics that work in urban areas aren’t as effective in places like the 1st District. We want to do our part at the federal level to help the folks at home who are dealing with this problem day in and day out.”


Today I visited with 1st Choice Healthcare in Pocahontas for National Community Healthcare Center week before heading over to Newport to discuss the flooding of the upper Cache River. The flooding issue affects farmers and landowners, but it's also an environmental issue, threatening acre upon acre of hardwood trees as water has trouble flowing past the Grubbs area. I met with 23 people from seven counties to discuss the long road ahead in solving the problem, including constituents and representatives from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and The Nature Conservancy.
