The Trump administration's Commission on Combating Drug Addiction and the Opioid Crisis, led by New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, is expected to miss its second deadline for filing an interim report.
The commission, which operates under the Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP), was created by President Trump in March to review the federal government's approach to the ongoing drug crisis and opioid epidemic. Membership on the commission is comprised of current and former lawmakers, as well as academics.
The commission was expected to provide an interim report after 90 days but rescheduled its first reporting deadline last month. The interim report, intended for June 27, was delayed in favor of a conference call on July 17 at 4 p.m.
A notice intended to be filed in the Federal Register, first reported by CBS, said that call will be delayed again until July 31 at 4 p.m.
The commission is expected to deliver its final report of recommendations to the president on Oct. 1.
