U.S. Senate Drug Caucus to hold field hearing in Cedar Rapids


WASHINGTON — A panel of Iowans working to combat drug abuse will provide testimony at a field hearing of the U.S. Senate Caucus on International Narcotics Control in Cedar Rapids on Oct. 14. The hearing, organized and led by Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), will provide insight and information on the needs of Iowa and local communities when it comes to federal drug control policy.

“The purpose of bringing these leaders together is to help us at the federal level better understand the needs and circumstances of the fight against drug abuse at the state and local level. The testimony we hear will provide important insight on Iowa’s drug control efforts, and how Congress can work to support Iowans as both legislative and executive branches develop a comprehensive approach to an ongoing and ever-changing problem. Drug control in our communities is critical to the safety and well-being of Iowa families,” Grassley said.

The witnesses will include experts and professionals from Governor Kim Reynolds’ Office of Drug Control Policy, Midwest High Intensity Drug Trafficking Areas, Iowa Alliance of Coalitions for Change and CRUSH (Community Resources United to Stop Heroin) of Iowa.
