Gov. Tom Wolf proposes new drug courts in budget

Gov. Tom Wolf says he is recommending $2 million for new drug courts and for the enhancement and expansion of existing courts in his 2018-19 proposed budget. 

His recommendation comes through an appropriation to the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency. 

"Drug courts are a key component in the fight against the opioid epidemic," PCCD Chairman Charles Ramsey said. "These courts address the underlying addiction and mental health issues of people involved in the criminal justice system while holding them accountable for their actions."
