Thousands of Letters to Congress and Media Outlets Highlight Need for Americans’ Continued Access To Safe, Affordable Medications;
Senator Withdraws Her Co-Sponsorship of Anti-Importation Bill
Good news in our ongoing efforts to protect your rights to importing safe, affordable medications from Canada:
After hearing from so many of you who took the time to directly contact Senator Amy Klobuchar (MN) and write letters to local newspapers, the Senator has recently withdrawn her support of the DRUGS Act.
We thank Senator Klobuchar for listening to the outpouring of concerns from Minnesotans and Americans nationwide, and for deciding to support all those who depend on personal importation for affordable access to daily medications. She has been an ardent champion for lowering drug prices and the lead co-sponsor of the Safe and Affordable Drugs from Canada Act.
The DRUGS Act legislation still exists, although lacking Senator Klobuchar’s endorsement. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) – who is now without a Democratic co-lead – and Representatives David McKinley (R-WV) and Bobby Rush (D-IL) are still championing the DRUGS Act, and – of course – Big Pharma is still actively campaigning for its passage. Your continued support and engagement will make the difference in educating Congress against this misguided legislation. You can contact your elected officials now: Take Action – Tell Congress No to the DRUGS Act.
CPPI will continue to fight against the DRUGS Act, and we will continue our work advocating to ensure all Americans have access to safe and affordable prescription medications.
