Neighborhood Network News 1/19/17

We begin tonight with a new plan for healing neighborhoods affected by violence. Mayor Walsh is setting up five teams for trauma response and recovery, in Dorchester, Jamaica Plain, Roxbury, Mattapan, and East Boston.

A second drug store chain has agreed to new restrictions on access to opioids. Under the agreement with the State Attorney General's Office, Walgreens would also pay a fine of two hundred thousand dollars. 

The City Council's considering a move by Mayor Walsh to get more funding for preschool. The mayor recently filed a home rule petition that would tap revenue controlled by the Mass Convention Center Authority. The money's from taxes on visitors.
