Daines Votes for Major Prescription Drug Pricing Reform to Lower Costs for Montanans, Save Taxpayers Billions
U.S. SENATE – U.S. Senator Steve Daines today voted to advance the bipartisan Prescription Drug Pricing Reduction Act of 2019 (PDPRA) out of the U.S. Senate Finance Committee. This major bipartisan prescription drug pricing reform package will help reduce out-of-pocket costs and lower prescription drug costs for Montanans. The package also saves Montanans and taxpayers over $100 billion. “From Great Falls to Miles City to Libby, Montanans are paying far too much for the medicine they need,” Daines said. “As Montana’s lone voice on the U.S. Senate Finance committee, I have made it one of my top priorities to lower prescription drug costs for Montanans.
