"Can we identify approaches and programs for eligible, nonviolent offenders that are successful in bringing the chains of drug addiction and reinforcing individual responsibility and also restoring productive workers to our work force, which result in substantial cost savings to our American taxpayers? If that is possible, we hope that it is an objective we can meet and also shed some light on through today's hearing. If we can, we should act without delay in supporting these programs on a national level"--Page 1.
