08.25.17 | Bob Price, Traci Lynn Woolsey

Republican Congressman Tom Reed says drug dealers deserve the death penalty when their "product" kills.

Speaking Thursday in Bath, NY, Reed noted the opioid epidemic has devastated families in the Southern Tier.

Congressman Reed says he'll announce his "Help Act" legislation to U.S. House members next month.

Steuben County District Attorney Brooks Baker says drug dealers have been put on notice.
