Drug Pricing Legislation Moves Forward 

H.R. 3, the Elijah Cummings Lower Drug Costs Now Act is slated to move forward in the U.S. House of Representatives. The legislation focuses on lowering prices of prescription drugs and using those savings to fund vital health programs and research. Notably, this bill includes $10 billion for funding for Community Health Centers. The National Rural Health Association’s rural health voices blog has a write-up of the drug pricing legislation and the different provisions in the bill.
