WASHINGTON — Rep. Doug Collins (R-Ga.), Ranking Member of the House Judiciary Committee, released the following statement on Democrats’ prescription drug pricing proposal.
“I’m disappointed the Democrats have chosen to pursue a partisan path for prescription drug costs that has no future in the Senate. We in the House Judiciary Committee unanimously passed four bipartisan bills to help reduce the cost of prescription drugs, but these bills have yet to come to the House floor for a vote. Patients across the country are struggling to afford their prescription medications, and it’s our job as legislators to work together and put forth real solutions that will provide American families the relief they desperately need. I hope Democratic leadership will consider the bipartisan solutions the Judiciary Committee has put forward.”
The House Judiciary Committee passed the following bills in April:
- H.R. 965, the CREATES Act
- H.R. 2375, the Preserve Access to Affordable Generics and Biosimilars Act
- H.R. 2374, the Stop STALLING Act
- H.R. 2376, the Prescription Pricing for the People Act of 2019
