Lawmakers want illegal Rx importation reduced

January 2, 2006

House lawmakers on both sides of the Congressional aisle want federal agencies to get their act together to reduce illegal Rx drug importation. Backed by a GAO report that concluded that federal agencies are not positioned to stem the flow of imported drugs, the Congressmen blasted the FDA, DEA, and the Bureau of Customs and Border Protection representatives for failed policies and are planning a legislative fix instead.
