Several promising new bills aimed at reducing drug prices and encouraging importation could provide hope for Americans struggling to access safe and affordable medications.
A bipartisan bill aimed at allowing Americans to purchase medications approved by Canadian pharmacies is being backed by Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN).
Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and more than 20 co-sponsors recently introduced the Affordable and Safe Prescription Drug Importation Act to allow patients, pharmacists and wholesalers to import safe, affordable medicine from Canada, among other countries.
We look forward to watching these bills closely and fighting for access to safe and affordable medications. Stay tuned for more information on how you can encourage your elected leaders to support these bills!
