WASHINGTON, DC – Today Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Greg Walden (R-OR), Subcommittee on Digital Commerce and Consumer Protection Chairman Bob Latta (R-OH), and Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigation Chairman Gregg Harper (R-MS) released the following statement at the conclusion of the Washington Anti-Doping Summit at the White House.
“For years we have heard from American and international athletes that sport must be clean and governance must be transparent. These systems exist to protect our athletes, and it is critical that we ensure their effectiveness. We support the Washington Anti-Doping Summit Declaration adopted at today’s summit and urge the World Anti-Doping Agency to embrace these reforms,” said Chairman Walden, #SubDCCP Chairman Latta, and #SubOversight Chairman Harper.
Last year the committee held an anti-doping hearing entitled ‘Ways to Improve and Strengthen the International Anti-Doping System’. To learn more about the hearing, click HERE.
