This testimony compilation is from the May 25, 2017 hearing on "Stopping the Shipment of Synthetic Opioids: Oversight of U.S. Strategy to Combat Illicit Drugs," held before the U.S. Senate Permanent Select Subcommittee on Investigations of the Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs. From the opening statement of Tom Carper: "Thank you, Mr. Chairman, for calling this important hearing today. I appreciate your continued focus on our country's opioid crisis, which has had deadly consequences for our friends, neighbors, and loved ones in communities across the country. I also appreciate our focus today on learning more about at least one of the ways these drugs are getting into our communities, and what we can do to stop them. I look forward to hearing from our witnesses on the first panel to better understand the processes used by the Postal Service, private shippers, and CBP [U.S. Customs and Border Protection] to screen international mail shipments and to identify and stop potentially illicit packages. I also look forward to learning more about where the coordination between shippers and federal agencies is working well, while identifying areas where we need to push for improvements." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Gregory Thome, Robert Cintron, Robert Perez, Tammy L. Whitcomb, Norman T. Schenk, Michael Botticelli, Thomas Synan Jr., Thomas P. Gilson, and Terry L. Horton.
