Walter Jones on Opioids
On October 25th, 2017, Walter Jones voted against H.R. 2142 – also known as the INTERDICT ACT.
This bill is simple: it increases the number of Opioid detection devices and Opioid detection personnel available for U.S. Customs and Border Patrol to use as they monitor the flow of goods coming over the border.
By doing so, this legislation helps stop the flow of Opioid drugs illegally arriving over the border, which would then go right into the hands of drug dealers.
Walter Jones was one of three votes in the entire House of Representatives against this critical bill.

This bill passed in the House of Representatives with a vote of 217-213 with only 20 Republicans voting no and Walter Jones was the only North Carolina Republican Congressman to vote against this important bill.
