On June 13, Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) held a hearing before the Senate Health Committee on the rising cost of prescription drugs. Read a summary of the bill.
Although the Minnesota Pharmacists Association agrees with Sen. Franken’s goal to make prescription medications more affordable for all Americans, we disagree with his plan to allow importation of medications from outside the U.S.
We encourage you to contact Sen. Franken to thank him for his work in keeping prescriptions affordable, but to suggest that he search for alternatives to importation. You can contact Sen. Franken through his website.
