As a legislative committee digs into the issue, Illinois House Democrats are pushing a package of bills this spring that aim to make prescription drugs more accessible, affordable and accountable.
Led by state Rep. Will Guzzardi, chairman of the new House Prescription Drug Affordability and Access Committee, several lawmakers will discuss their proposals for prescription drug reform at a Statehouse news conference at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, February 27, 2019. Taken together, the bills comprise the most ambitious state-level approach in the country to lowering prescription drug costs.
The news conference will preview the Committee’s ongoing work this session, including a hearing Wednesday with an expert from Washington, D.C., and a Chicago subject matter hearing on Friday, March 1, on insurance and drug cost impact on consumers.
