This week on Banter, AEI Visiting Fellow Naomi Schaefer Riley joined the show to discuss the opioid epidemic’s strain on our foster care system and possible solutions to improve the lives of affected children. Riley cohosted an event at AEI featuring a keynote from Arizona Governor Doug Ducey on the severity of the opioid crisis in Arizona and its effect on foster care families, followed by an expert panel discussion on what policies can best serve the interests of children affected by drug abuse. You can watch the full event video at the link below.
