I hope summer has been treating you well. Since the Legislature adjourned at the end of May, I’ve been sitting in on Prescription Drug Task Force meetings, a group that was created by Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison in April, which is charged with gathering expertise and input in order to understand why the prices of prescription drugs are so high and continue to rise. The purpose of the task force is to come up with strategies to lower prices. I’ll continue to monitor their progress. If you have ideas to share regarding possible solutions to end prescription price gouging, please give me a call at 651-296-5506 or send me an email.
