Hearing Your Concerns on Prescription Costs

April 5, 2019

You expressed frustration at the effects of rising prescription drug costs so I heard you and co-sponsored HB 7174. I am thrilled to share with you that the bill was moved out of the Insurance and Real Estate Committee and has been scheduled to be considered by the entire House. This legislation will address the high cost of drugs by protecting small pharmacies and consumers, discouraging anti competitive practice, and creating a task force to study other feasible importing options.

My priority is to support our middle class so we are passing legislation that will make that possible.
