Travis Tygart, JD, Chief Executive Officer at the USADA (United States Anti-Doping Agency), as quoted in a Nov. 17 2020 article, "Senate passes bill that would allow U.S. to pursue doping conspirators abroad," written by Rick Maese, and available at, stated:

“The [Rodchenkov Anti-Doping] Act establishes criminal penalties for systems that carry out doping-fraud schemes that rob athletes, citizens and businesses. It also protects whistleblowers from retaliation and provides restitution for athletes defrauded by conspiracies to dope. It is a monumental day in the fight for clean sport worldwide and we look forward to seeing the Act soon become law and help change the game for clean athletes for the good.”
