Both candidates running to represent the 24th Congressional District want to prevent heroin and synthetic drug use in New York, but have different ways of doing it.
Republican candidate John Katko says he has a twofold approach to address the issue.
"It's targeted enforcement, beefed up targeted enforcement about the heroin and synthetic drug problem, through the enhancement of task forces," Katko said. "So that's basically what this plan is about."
Katko proposes to increase law enforcement funding and manpower, and expand treatment options.
