The cost of prescription drugs was a topic of discussion of a listening session in New Prague Wednesday. State Senator Rich Draheim (Dray-heim) of Madison Lake was asked what the best-case scenario would be regarding the issue at the end of the legislative session.


“Reimportation has to be done,” said Draheim. “I am comfortable with reimporting drugs from Canada, or Israel or any other country that has similar standards to us.”


Draheim says lawmakers passed a bi-partisan to lower the cost of pharmaceuticals they need to do more.
