Why Oppose the “Ohio Drug Price Relief Act”?


The so-called “Ohio Drug Price Relief Act” is a deceptive and vaguely worded ballot issue (technically called an “initiated statute”) that will appear on the November 2017 ballot. It would prohibit our state government from paying more for prescription drugs than the lowest price paid by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. It would also give the ballot issue’s four named sponsors the right to intervene at taxpayer expense in any legal challenges that may be filed against it if it becomes law.
