BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Trump says government will sue drug companies over opioid crisis

Trump says government will sue drug companies over opioid crisis

President Donald Trump said the federal government will sue certain drug companies over the opioids crisis.

The president did not specify which companies he was referring to in his comments Friday after signing an omnibus spending bill to fund the federal government through the end of the fiscal year, which he said earlier in the day he was considering vetoing.

The bill includes more than $3 billion in funding to counter the opioid epidemic.

“Doctors are way down now in their orders of the opioids,” he said. “It’s a great thing. In our research funds, we’re also looking for a medicine that can stop the pain without the addiction so that people aren’t going to become addicted to these incredible drugs.”
