Veto Explanation:   I am striking language which earmarks funding for programs not recommended. The reduction in the item incorporates the amount of the stricken earmarked funds. I am filing for $27.8 million in new funding for substance abuse services and treatment in the FY15 year-end supplemental bill which prioritizes funding based on recommendations made by my Opioid Addiction Working Group.
