Rhode Island US Senator Sheldon Whitehouse says the just passed one point seven trillion-dollar spending measure will mean some big bucks for the state.
Among other things, the measure is designed to help families deal with inflation as well as local communities to address security and climate issues.
Specifically, the state will get almost 400 million dollars from the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act which will help in the response to the opioid crisis and 111 million dollars for Medication Assisted Treatment.
The bill is currently awaiting the signature of The President.
