Connect to Congress: Sen. Baldwin on prescription drug costs
APPLETON (WLUK) -- U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin was in Northeast Wisconsin Friday to discuss skyrocketing prescription drug costs.
Baldwin held a roundtable event in Appleton with local health care providers and advocates.
Those in attendance talked about possible solutions to bring the prices down with the senator.
Baldwin and Senator John McCain (R-AZ) authored the bipartisan FAIR Drug Pricing Act which would require transparency for pharmaceutical corporations that plan to increase drug prices.
Baldwin has also announced support for CREATES Act which prevents pharmaceutical companies from blocking cheaper generic alternatives from entering the marketplace.
