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.
