"As rates of overdose deaths continue to spike, public health agencies, law enforcement, and others are struggling to keep up without clear and timely information about the epidemic.

Statements On Introduced Bills And Joint Resolutions June 17, 2015
Ron Wyden, D-OR
"Now, drafting legislation in an area where technology is advancing rapidly and so many policy issues intersect, is a very difficult task.

Repeal The Medical Device Tax June 17, 2015
Michael Fitzpatrick, R-PA
"I asked about FDA’s reporting process for dangerous devices and their postmarket surveillance techniques. I asked for detailed explanations on why the power morcellator remains on the market, despite the high risks that have now been revealed."
