Cosponsors and Attorney General Endorsement
Thanks to our coalition’s emails and calls to legislators, twenty-three Senators and seventy-nine Delegates have agreed to cosponsor our Drug Cost Commission bills, SB 1023 and HB 1194. In addition, Attorney General Brian Frosh has endorsed this life-saving legislation. This is great progress, but we have to keep working hard!
Contact your state legislators to urge them to support SB 1023 and HB 1194 and oppose any weakening amendments from the drug industry by going to www.healthcareforall.com/
The hearing date for SB 1023 is Wednesday, February 28th at 1pm before the Senate Finance Committee. We will let you know about a House hearing date when it is scheduled.

Thank you! We are making great progress, but we have much work ahead of us!
