Maryland Maybe Target Drug Price Hikes

The Washington Post said, “Maryland Legislature may give the attorney general the power to sue drug companies that hike prices too much.”

Who Supports It: The bill was proposed by Attorney General Brian Frosh, a Democrat. Rep. Elijah Cummings, Trump’s Democratic negotiating partner on drug prices, tweeted in support of it this morning, said Maryland “has always been a leader on healthcare access.”

What To Watch: Would Republican Gov. Larry Hogan sign it? The Post does not say. We’re trying to find out from Hogan’s office & will update this post if we do.

The Next Steps: The state Senate approved the bill yesterday, but it still has to negotiate a final version with the House before the legislature adjourns on Monday.
