From the opening statement of Carolyn Maloney: "Today, the Committee on Oversight and Reform will hold its second hearing to examine how the Sackler family caused America's opioid epidemic, one of the deadliest public health crises in our Nation's history. We will hear how they researched it, how they planned it, how they manufactured it, how they sold it, how they marketed it, and, ultimately, how they profited billions from the sale of OxyContin. And we will hear also of the pain and suffering of the people who became addicted to it." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Alexis Pleus, Maura Healey, Jim Carroll, Lawrence Wasden, and Patrick Radden Keefe.
