WASHINGTON — Tomorrow U.S. Senators John Cornyn (R-TX), Chairman, and Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), co-Chairman, will hold a hearing of the Senate Caucus on International Narcotics Control to examine how the United States Government can expand international efforts against drug abuse and narcotics trafficking. Specifically, the Caucus plans to look at ways the State Department’s counter-narcotics efforts –globally and in Central and South America- can be strengthened.
This will be the first hearing of the Senate Caucus on International Narcotics Control in the 116th Congress. Moving forward, the Caucus plans to examine the federal government’s role in combatting transnational criminal organizations and partnering with law enforcement on a national, state, and local level. Additionally, the Caucus will focus on ways to strengthen domestic drug prevention and treatment programs.
