Drug Negotiation Bill Goes to the Senate Floor

The Senate Finance Committee passed the Part D drug negotiation bill late Thursday night allowing the federal government to negotiate with drug companies for lower prescription drug prices. The committee's vote was 13-8. The Associated Press has coverage of the debate. The full Senate is expected to vote sometime this week.

It will be a busy week with activities planned in advance of the Senate vote...more on that soon.
