This is the July 16, 2015 hearing on "The Goldman Act to Return Abducted American Children: Ensuring Accurate Numbers and Administration Action," held before the House Subcommittee on Africa, Global Health, Global Human Rights, and International Organizations. From the opening statement of Christopher Smith: "The Goldman Act is a law calculated to get results, as we did in the return of Sean Goldman from Brazil in late December 2009. But the new law is only as good as its implementation. The State Department's first annual report that we are reviewing today is the first step in moving past quiet diplomacy to results. The State Department must get this report right in order to trigger the actions above and for the law to be an effective tool." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Susan S. Jacobs, Patricia Apy, Randy Collins, Kelly Rutherford, Samina Rahman, and Diane McGee.
