Capital Public Radio Capitol Chat: Transparency On Drug Costs Put On Hold

August 18, 2016

A bill aimed at shedding light on drug costs has been shelved by its author.

On Thursday's Capitol Chat, Capitol Bureau Chief Ben Adler explains why Senator Ed Hernandez decided to stop moving SB 1010 through the Legislature.

SB 1010 was designed to help ensure that healthcare purchasers are notified of price increases for prescription drugs in advance and have information needed to effectively negotiate with drug companies for fair prices.
