Bennet, Burr React to IOM Report: "Countering the Problem of Falsified and Substandard Drugs"

We remain committed to working with our colleagues to enact bipartisan legislation this year to put in place a uniform, national traceability framework built on the principle of advancing workable traceability informed by risk-based circumstances surrounding suspect and illegitimate prescription drugs.”
