Statement: Senator Hernandez on Pharma’s Challenge of SB 17

December 8, 2017

SACRAMENTO – Today, the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America initiated litigation challenging Senate Bill 17.

Senator Ed Hernandez, O.D. issued the following statement:

“This lawsuit is just another example of Big Pharma refusing to accept any responsibility for the skyrocketing costs of prescription drugs. The idea that anyone other than drug companies is responsible for price increases is absurd. I’m confident the law will be upheld.”
