Chairman Scott Praises Passage of Landmark Bill to Lower Prescription Drug Costs

“By passing H.R. 3, the Elijah E. Cummings Lower Drug Costs Now Act, House Democrats are delivering on our promise to provide the American people long-awaited relief from skyrocketing prescription drug costs. This legislation will cut the cost of prescription drugs for seniors, families, taxpayers, and businesses across the country. This bill not only saves $500 billion by preventing drug companies from overcharging American consumers, it reinvests that money into expanding Medicare benefits, strengthening community health centers, and funding other vital public health programs. The Elijah E. Cummings Lower Drug Costs Now Act is a historic achievement on behalf of the American people, and I urge the Senate to join our effort to lower drug costs by immediately taking up this legislation.”
