Sheen said, “I stand here today with one purpose; to ensure Congress holds the line on the $88.7 million they are currently investing in Drug Court. Now is not the time to cut funding to a proven budget solution that saves valuable tax dollars, reduces recidivism and serves our veterans in need of treatment."
