Counterfeit Drug Penalty Enhancement Act of 2012

Floor Speech

Location: Washington, DC

Ms. LINDA T. SÁNCHEZ of California. Mr. Speaker, I rise in support of H.R. 3668, the Counterfeit Drug Penalty Enhancement Act. I have worked with Representative Meehan, worked for quite a while on this issue and it's rewarding to see that bipartisan, practical ideas still have a place in this body.

H.R. 3668 will raise the penalties for counterfeit medicines, a unique consumer health and safety problem. This legislation is needed, bipartisan, and non-controversial.

Counterfeit drug enterprises jeopardize the public's safety and I believe perpetrators should be held accountable.

Unlike other consumer goods, counterfeit medicines pose a significant public health and safety threat to the innocent, sick patients who receive them.
H.R. 3668 will help protect seniors and children, who are uniquely vulnerable, as well as anyone who could be harmed by fraudulent medicines.

We must have tougher penalties for crimes that are a threat to public safety.
H.R. 3668 ensures this and I encourage my colleagues to support this straightforward, reasonable approach.
