California Healthline: California’s Drug Price Initiative: Will Voters ‘Send A Signal To Washington’?
Pauline Bartolone reports: "This year, Mary O’Connor and her father made voting a family affair. O’Connor’s father is a Vietnam veteran, so she was especially interested in his views on Proposition 61, a California ballot measure that would peg the state’s payments for prescription drugs to prices paid by the Department of Veterans Affairs. It’s widely believed the federal program for military personnel gets some of the deepest discounts in the country." (Bartolone, 11/7)
