Representative-TBA, Ohio Taxpayers for Lower Drug Prices
Representative -TBA, Ohioans Against the Deceptive Rx Ballot Issue
The Ohio Drug Price Relief Act, a citizen-initiated statute slated for the November ballot, would require the state of Ohio to pay no more for prescription drugs than the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. And, regardless of how you plan to vote, it could end up being the state’s most expensive ballot-issue campaign ever, according to political analysts and observers.
This forum will have arguments on both sides of this ballot issue and representatives from the Cleveland Clinic and CWRU Weatherhead/Medical School to further debate this complicated subject.
