Today, we were thrilled to see the introduction of common-sense legislation that will take aim at an area long overdue for reform: Expensive prescription drugs and the regulations that enable monopolies and high prices.

Representatives Peter Welch (D-VT) and David McKinley (R-WV) on Friday introduced the “Fair Access for Safe and Timely Generics Act of 2017,” or the “FAST Generics Act of 2017.” The bill would provide a path to relief for generic manufacturers who are being blocked from entering the marketplace.

We were proud to sign onto a letter of support alongside 18 other organizations. Read the full letter here.
